Clark County’s automotive fleet was rated No. 6 in the nation for having the highest percentage of hybrids in its fleet, according to Automotive Fleet magazine. No other public sector fleet in Nevada was found to be in the top 25.
The finding is significant since Clark County’s fleet is already the third-largest in the state (behind the state of Nevada and the Clark County School District).
The County has 2,775 vehicles and 539 are hybrid (using a combination of gasoline and electricity) – 19 percent of our fleet. We believe this is a strong indication of our commitment to conserving energy and reducing air pollution.
The top five public sector hybrid fleets were owned by New York City, the city of Los Angeles, the state of Washington, the city of Houston and the U.S. General Services Administration.
