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 (BEVs).
- Agencies that operate medium- and heavy-duty vehicles must implement strategies to reduce fuel consumption through diesel emission control devices, HEV and EV 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.
