In the first year of this Action Plan, Clarington purchased and put into service six EVs and one hybrid vehicle.
2022 EV fleet update:
In 2022, Clarington added seven new electric vehicles (EVs) to its light-duty fleet for corporate use as it continues to take action to reduce corporate carbon emissions. The new vehicles were funded from building permit fees and will save the municipality money in both fuel and maintenance costs.
