The Feds will get an additional 10,000 hybrids over the 10,672 they already have, lifting the federal hybrid market share from 5.3 percent to over 10 percent, the Detroit News says.
According to the paper, the GSA will fund the incremental cost to replace eligible vehicles with new hybrid sedans.
Allegedly, the move will save 1 million gallons of fuel per year for the life of these vehicles.
It was not released what badges the division-strength hybrids will carry. Seeking Alpha presumes that “General Motors and Ford will receive some home field advantage.”
