GSA bought these vehicles as part of our effort to provide a selection of the latest model hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles to the federal community.—Lurita Doan, GSA Administrator
GSA will lease 43 of the hybrids to the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps and Navy, and to the Departments of Transportation, Interior, Energy and Commerce, the Environmental Protection Agency and National Space and Aeronautics Administration. The other 12 will remain in the GSA fleet, for agency use and to use as demonstration models during sales presentations to federal customers.
In addition to purchasing the Saturns, GSA also purchased more than 24,000 alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) for federal customers this year. In total, GSA has purchased more than 140,000 AFVs and hybrids since 1991.
