Electric fleet

Plugged in and Powered Up: FM Launches Fleet Electrification Pilot

A quiet transformation has begun on the College Park campus as 51 distinctive vehicles - 25 vans, 23 pickups, and three SUVs - begin circulating the campus grounds. They are the first fully electric vehicles (EVs) in the Facilities Management (FM) fleet, part of a one-year pilot project, and an important step toward President Pines’ goal of a fully electric fleet by 2035.

"I want to express my gratitude for the efforts you put in for the unveiling of both Field Hockey and Women's Lacrosse. The student-athletes and staff were beyond excited when they toured the facility. Thank you!"

Joshua Kaplan Associate Athletics Director, Intercollegiate Athletics
