Electric Vehicle (EV) Deployment and Fleet Acquisition Goals
The Maine Central Fleet Management Division and the Department of Public Safety must meet the following light-duty vehicle (LDV) fleet acquisition goals:
- By 2025, 50% of state fleet LDV acquisitions are zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs); and,
- By 2030, 100% of state fleet LDV acquisitions are ZEVs and PHEVs
The state also established a goal of increasing statewide EV and PHEV registrations to 220,000 by 2030, and encourages county and municipal fleets to increase ZEV and PHEV purchases to 100% of all new LDV acquisitions by 2035.
