Through the leadership of Mayor Richard Daley, the City of Chicago has joined Plug In Partners with a big bang by committing to purchase 850 plug in hybrid vehicles.

move toward Plug in Hybrids.
The plug in partner campaign has recently received fleet orders from
other cities and states. Here are the most recent.
