Mayor Eric Garcetti today announced a commitment to lease 160 pure battery EV vehicles, a move that will give Los Angeles the largest city-owned pure EV fleet in America. The program commits city departments to the leasing of pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to replace aging city vehicles — including those with conventional internal combustion engines. The announcement comes on the eve of the U.S.-China Climate Leaders Summit to be hosted in L.A. on Sept. 15-16.
