Phoenix City Council unanimously passed on Wednesday a plan to put as many as 280,000 more electric vehicles on the road by 2030 and position Phoenix as a leader in EV adoption.
The Transportation Electrification Plan’s EV Roadmap informs on accelerating the transition to EVs with three main focuses: prioritizing equity in communities impacted by poor air quality, accelerating public adoption through education and leading by example through Phoenix electrifying its own fleets.
“It was an honor to work on this groundbreaking plan that should help Phoenix become a leader in the implantation of electric vehicles. I am excited to see its implementation and look forward to cleaner air and less pollution as we make this transition.”
