Switching City vehicles to electric vehicles (EV) has been great cost and time savings to the City thanks to Measure P. Here are the stats during a 12-month period since replacing old gasoline vehicles to new electric vehicles:
- Cost per mile: old vehicle $0.15, EVs $0.03 or 80% decrease in cost
- Hours down (broken/unusable): old vehicle 1,566 hours VS EVs 257 hours THAT’S 84% less down time
- Fuel costs: old vehicle $10,310 VS EVs $2,610 or 75% less fuel costs. Yay for efficiency!
