State of Vermont accepts donated plug-in electric hybrid vehicles from Toyota

MONTPELIER – Gov. Peter Shumlin and Michael Obuchowski, Commissioner of the Department of Buildings and General Services, announced today that the State is accepting the donation of two plug-in hybrid electric sedans from Toyota. The two Toyota Prius plug-in hybrids will be delivered to Montpelier in the next few weeks to be added to the State’s Fleet.

“I want to express my gratitude for this generous donation. It comes at a perfect time, as we are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint by encouraging industry and consumers to look seriously at building charging stations and purchasing Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs)” said Gov. Shumlin.

“The State of Vermont is leading by example,” said Toyota General Manager George Brenner. “Providing Vermonters with more hands-on experience should benefit the state as it moves forward with policies and investments to support greater consumer acceptance of ZEVs.”

Brenner said Toyota was committed to investing in ZEV technology and interested in working with the State to promote a ZEV refueling infrastructure, including electricity for plug-in vehicles and hydrogen for future fuel cell vehicles.
