General Electric has announced that it will be buying 2,000 Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrids frot its fleet. FoMoCo and GE are both teaming up to market GE’s alternative fuel infrastructure solutions to commercial customers and provide new alternative fuel vehicles for use at GE’s Vehicle Innovation Center.
The two companies will also collaborate with researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology on data collection and analysis on GE’s fleet in order to add even greater efficiencies to electric driving and charging.
The addition of the Ford Energi brings the total number of alternative fuel vehicles in GE’s fleet to more than 5,000 toward its goal of 25,000 vehicles.
“We are focused on providing our customers and our fleet with more economically and environmentally efficient vehicles,” Mark Vachon, GE Vice President of ecomagination. “The Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid is a great addition to our expanding fleet of alternative fuel vehicles.”
