Latest Electric Vehicles Shown Off
From an electric lift on a PG&E truck, to a duel suspension electric parking enforcement car, if you can drive it, and plug it in, it was probably on display Thursday at the California Automotive Museum.
The showcase was part of the Green Fleet Vehicles Forum, and featured both public electric cars such as electric police motorcycles and private green machines like an electric powered UPS Truck.
With all the cars to look at, the clear show stopper was PG&E’s Electric Bucket Truck, allowing workers to no longer have to idle their engines while working.
“It makes it quiter and more efficient,” said Mark Baer a green fleet sales specialist with Altec, the company the distributes the lift.
PG&E says its alternative green fleet saved the company $700,000 last year, they have 3,100 alternative fuel vehicles in use right now.
