AT&T deploys 8,000th CNG vehicle; one of the largest corporate CNG fleets in US

14 May 2014

AT&T recently deployed its 8,000th compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle, achieving a major milestone in the company’s overall 10-year, $565-million commitment to add approximately 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) to its fleet by end of year 2018.

The 8,000th CNG vehicle—a 2014 Chevy Express van manufactured in Wentzville, Missouri—was delivered to a work center in St. Louis, Missouri, and will be used to provide entertainment and communications services in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

In addition to CNG, AT&T has deployed hybrid electric, all electric and extended-range electric vehicles, achieving a total AFV fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles located in 43 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

As AT&T looks to accomplish its broader target of over 15,000 AFVs, the company will continue to deploy a mix of technologies to meet the varied vehicle needs of its drivers.

AT&T’s AFV fleet allowed the company to avoid the purchase of 12.4 million gallons of gasoline as of the end of 2013, over the 5-year period since the company’s commitment to alternative fuels was first announced.
