EVI launches 500 electric medium-duty truck deployment initiative in California

Electric Vehicles International is launching a new initiative to deploy 500 fully electric return-to-base medium-duty delivery trucks in California. (Earlier post.)

With the partnership and support of agencies such as the California Energy Commission, the California Air Resources Board, South Coast Air Quality Management District, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, and the Sacramento Air Quality Management District, EVI and UPS will jumpstart implementation of California Governor Brown’s EV Executive Order (earlier post) early this summer by deploying 100 medium-duty electric vehicles. (Earlier post.)

We are thrilled that national fleet operators are choosing California to lead large-scale deployments of commercial electric vehicles. UPS’ deployment of 100 EVI zero emission vehicles this year and EVI's 500-vehicle initiative over the next two years will greatly help improve public health in California by reducing air pollution.

—Mary D. Nichols, Chairman of the California Air Resources Board

It is good to see that such big measures are taken to make electric vehicles more popular in the market. There is a need to look for alternate sources of fuel now that gas has become so expensive.
