Green vehicles are more environmentally friendly vehicles that operate with less harmful emissions and are more efficient. Green vehicles may operate on a more sustainable or renewable fuel source or, have a more efficient hybrid engine that conserves energy through regenerative braking.
To help customer agencies meet mission and environmental requirements, GSA offers customers new, fuel-efficient vehicles, which include vehicles that operate on alternative fuels and zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) that provide long-term environmental benefits and save money for the taxpayers. GSA provides federal agencies with the opportunity to purchase an array of ZEVs, including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) models. ZEV options include light-duty vehicles across multiple brands and vehicle categories: sedans, vans, light-duty pickup trucks, crossover, and sport utility vehicles. Customers can buy or lease these vehicles from GSA Fleet.
