The Electrification Coalition worked with Atlas Public Policy to analyze a subset of Nevada state fleet vehicles that are up for replacement. Download the full report (PDF).
- Nevada can realize savings even without rebates or grants by electrifying 210 light-duty vehicles and nine medium-duty vehicles, or 92 percent of the vehicles analyzed.
- Electric vans, SUVs, minivans, sedans, and pickup trucks all offer lower lifetime costs than conventional replacements on average.
- Electric work trucks and medium-duty pickup trucks do not yet offer as favorable total costs of ownership as conventional vehicles.
- Plug-in hybrids such as the Chrysler Pacifica, Ford Escape, and Toyota Rav4 can enable cost-effective electrification where viable all-electric vehicles are still limited.
- In some cases where exact EV replacements are not available, the fleet may benefit from downsizing if a smaller EV can still meet the requirements of the vehicle.
- In many cases, annual vehicle miles traveled makes or breaks the case for electrification, especially in the case of the Ford eTransit.
