What is the Collaborative?

About the Climate Mayors Electric Vehicle Purchasing Collaborative

In January 2017, the City of Los Angeles released an Electric Vehicle Request for Information (EV RFI) with 30 other cities across the country, which helped to aggregate and better understand municipal demand for EVs. Since then, cities have received feedback and suggestions that led to the development of the Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative (the Collaborative).

The Collaborative will work together to leverage the buying power of the Climate Mayors cities to reduce the costs for EVs and charging station acquisition for all cities in the U.S. to accelerate city fleet transition. The collaborative will also provide training, best practices, educational materials, and analysis support, creating a one-stop location to support EV transition.
