GSA

Light & Medium Truck - July 6, 2011

Pres­i­dent Oba­ma has direct­ed the GSA to buy only vehi­cles using alter­na­tive fuel by the end of 2015. GSA man­ages vehi­cle pur­chas­es for fed­er­al agen­cies and assists the gov­ern­ment in man­ag­ing a fleet of 660,000 vehi­cles. GSA will begin com­pli­ance by pur­chas­ing 100 elec­tric vehi­cles includ­ing Volt and Leaf mod­els. Alter­na­tive fuel vehi­cles include elec­tric, nat­ur­al gas, clean diesel and flex-fuel cars using E-85.
