Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Acquisition Goals

Illinois state agencies must work towards meeting the following goals:

  • By July 1, 2025, at least 60% of new passenger vehicles purchased must be hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and 15% must be battery electric vehicles (EVs).
  • Agencies that operate medium- and heavy-duty vehicles must implement strategies to reduce fuel consumption through diesel emission control devices, HEV and EVs technologies, alternative fuel use, and fuel-efficient technologies.
  • Agencies must also implement strategies to promote the use of biofuels in state vehicles; reduce the environmental impacts of employee travel; and encourage employees to adopt alternative travel methods.

Vehicles designated as specialty, police, and emergency vehicles by the Illinois Department of Central Management Services are exempt from these goals, but should make all reasonable efforts to minimize petroleum usage.
