The US Army will lease 4,000 electric vehicles to use for on-post transportation at bases in the Continental United States. The electric vehicles are not only “green” as in environmentally friendly; they will also save the Army some “green”. The yearly energy bill for each electric vehicle is slated to be only $ 400, compared with $ 2,000 for gasoline or diesel vehicles in the current Army motor pool.
