Halfway there and not breaking speed, AT&T has reached the halfway mark of its commitment to invest up to $565 million to deploy approximately 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles over the course of a ten year period through 2018.
Here are the stats so far:
- 7,500 alternative fuel vehicles
- 44 states
- The 7,500th vehicle – a 2013 compressed natural gas (CNG) Chevy Express van - was delivered to a U-verse technician in Lenexa, Kansas.
The CNG van is part of AT&T’s plan to deploy up to 8,000 CNG vehicles to its fleet over a five year period through the end of first quarter 2014 – the largest U.S. corporate commitment to CNG to date.
The 7,500 AFVs AT&T has already placed in service are:
- 5,474 CNG
- 1,996 hybrid electric
- 27 extended range electric
- 3 all-electric vehicles.
AT&T’s deployment of alternative fuel vehicles enabled the company to avoid the purchase of 7.7M gallons of gasoline from the beginning of the program through the end of 2012.
