Rhode Island to Add Electric-Drive Cars to State Fleet
PROVIDENCE — For the first time, Rhode Island is including electric vehicles in its annual purchase of state cars and trucks. As another first, cities and towns can also buy EVs and other fuel-efficient vehicles through the program.
The new vehicles include the all-electric Ford Focus, Nissan Leaf and Honda Fit. Plug-in gas-electric models include the Chevy Volt, Ford C-Max, Toyota Prius Hatchback and Ford Fusion.
The state operates only one charging station of six across the sate. Officials hope that offering EVs will promote the installation of many more.
