Fleet Success Stories

In the DEUSA projects, each state is to utilize a few different mechanisms to engage fleets in discussions about electrifying their vehicles. This can and should include on-road light-duty and medium/heavy-duty vehicles, as well as nonroad vehicles (such as electric terminal tractors). A large survey is part of the work and includes following up with respondents about their interests in EVs. See just below the map to access the fleet stories by state!

Early 2024 – We are adding stories on a weekly basis; a total of 140 fleet stories will exist here by the end of January 2024 that will be from the original 14 DEUSA1 project states.
Full-color states are part of the DEUSA1 project and have completed all their fleet work and stories. The striped gray states have just begun their DEUSA2 journey and will be beginning or continuing their fleet electrification work, with their stories planned to be added in 2024 and 2025.
