Indianapolis Mayor Ballard Turning City’s Fleet Green


Fleet & Fuels - December 19, 2012

Indi­anapo­lis Mayor Greg Bal­lard is tak­ing the city’s fleet green – all of its light-duty non-police vehi­cles will be either bat­tery or plug-in hybrid by 2025, and heavy fleet vehi­cles will be switch­ing over to com­pressed nat­ural gas. He’d also like to see automak­ers offer plug-in police cars, too. “The United States’ cur­rent trans­porta­tion energy model, dri­ven by oil, exacts an enor­mous cost finan­cially and in terms of strate­gic lever­age,” Bal­lard said in a speech.
