What is the Collaborative?

About the Climate Mayors Electric Vehicle Purchasing Collaborative

In January 2017, the City of Los Angeles and 30 other U.S. cities issued an Electric Vehicle Request for Information (RFI), which helped aggregate and better understand municipal demand for EVs. Feedback and suggestions received through that process led to the development of the Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative.

The Collaborative works to leverage the buying power of Climate Mayors cities to reduce the costs of EVs and charging infrastructure for all U.S. cities, counties, state governments and public universities, thereby accelerating fleet transitions. The Collaborative also provides training, best practices, educational resources and analysis support, creating a one-stop shop to support EV transitions for public fleets.

Committed Cities & Counties

The following cities and counties have committed to purchase more than 3,500 EVs before the end of 2021. This list is continuing to grow and will be updated regularly.
