The Municipal Parking Department has become the first city department to fully convert its fleet to all electric, announced Mayor Mike Duggan.
Detroit is now working toward converting the city’s active fleet of over 3000 vehicles to electric or hybrid vehicles, a key strategic initiative in our climate action plan to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions. The announcement of 48 new Chevy Bolt EVs and 25 on-site Level 2 charging stations marks a milestone for the city. The new fleet was deployed this week and residents can spot the new vehicles by the decals outfitted to illustrate the fleet’s 100% electric, zero emissions capacity.
