Electric Bus and Government Fleets
The government should mandate that all new fleet cars and new public transport vehicles (buses) should be electic.
This is happening in other jurisdictions- for example California has mandated that by 2029 all city buses must be electric.
Why the contribution is important
Reduced air polution. Potentially cheaper overall ownership costs over the life of the vehicle. Provides support for these nacent industries. Will provide a 2nd hand market in 5 years time for private buyers that cannot afford to buy new.
The Jersey Post postman I've talked to are very happy with their electric vehicles. How nice to not breath diesel fumes from your delivery car all day.
