The Biden administration has promised a swift movement of regulations supporting the growth of electric vehicles in the U.S. Many top U.S. automakers are embracing the plan, with companies like Ford and GM setting ambitious goals for their electric fleet over the coming decade. Overall, the industry expects to invest over $250 billion into electric technology in just the next two years, with both federal regulators and company executives seemingly finally on the same page in terms of an electric future.
If the U.S. is looking to set an example for how much they believe in electric transportation, updating their current federal fleet of vehicles to electric technology could be a carbon-friendly modernization of decades-old vehicles. Data shows which federal fleets could be potential targets for greener, electric replacements.
In data collected by Bloomberg from the General Services Administration, the 225,000 Postal Service vehicles could be the most efficient target for electrifying the most federal vehicles. Other top targets with the most vehicles include the Army, Homeland Security, the Air Force and the Justice Department, all with over 47,000 vehicles currently in rotation.
