Canada: City’s Fleet To Test New Leaf

Prince George, B.C.- The City of Prince George is going to be turning a new “leaf” when it comes to transportation.

The City will be adding an all electric car to it’s fleet, a Nissan “Leaf”. Charge outlets for the vehicle will be in place at City Hall, and at the 5th Avenue parkade.

The purchase of the vehicle , complete with charging stations, will be in the $50 thousand dollar range with the dollars coming from the gas tax revenue provided to the City.

The purchase is being done in partnership with the University of Northern B.C, the Regional District and Northern Health as all of the partners want to see how such a vehicle will perform in this climate and if it will met their specific needs.

A fully charged Nissan Leaf is said to use 765 kilojoules per kilometre, which translates to 2.4 litres of gas per 100 kilometres and it produces zero emissions.

The Leaf is just one of the projects the City of Prince George is undertaking to make its fleet of vehicles more environmentally friendly.

The City has 450 vehicles, which include graders, loaders, street weepers, pothole patching trucks to pick ups and SUVs.
