JUST REPLACING ALL GOVERNMENT VEHICLES WILL FUEL THE REVOLUTION:
Indianapolis to replace fleet with electric, hybrid vehicles (Associated Press, December 12, 2012)
Indianapolis wants to become the first major city to replace its entire fleet with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.Mayor Greg Ballard signed an executive order Wednesday mandating that the city replace its current sedans with electric vehicles. The city will also work with the private sector to phase in snow plows, fire trucks and other heavy vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, and it will ask automakers to develop a plug-in hybrid police car because one doesn't yet exist.
