Driven by its commitment to the community and the environment, today CPS Energy announced the purchase of 34 XLP Plug-In Hybrid Electric Ford F-150 pickup trucks – the largest purchase of Plug-In F-150s of any utility or private company to date and the 1st in Texas to use the vehicles.
The new vehicles will replace the less efficient fleet of vehicles. The new trucks deliver significant fuel economy equivalency gains – offering more than 50% better fuel economy and a comparable reduction in emissions over similar standard vehicles — based on manufacturer’s figures that take into consideration long commutes.
“Through our latest hybrid-electric vehicle investments, we will leverage new technology that has been economically designed to help protect our environment,” said Paula Gold-Williams, CPS Energy’s President & CEO. “These cars are great enhancements to our fleet of vehicles, which are used to serve our customers, day-in and day-out.”
