Is your Municipal Fleet Plugged In?

Ford has been advancing electrified vehicle technology for more than
a decade. Today we’re creating the future of electrified vehicles with
the development of hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all electric vehicles. Gresham Ford Fleet also believes in the Power of Choice.  Ford has been providing reliable, efficient hybrid electric vehicles on the road for over 10 years.  Many Government Fleet Buyer have enjoyed the low operating costs of vehicles like the Ford Escape Hybrid.
Ford Hybrid Electric Vehicles for Municipal Fleets


Instead of developing only one type of electrified vehicle and expecting everyone to adapt their lifestyle to the car, Ford offers the power of choice – a plan that allows us to come to market with three different types of electrified power trains that meet the broadest range of customer needs. That way, more people have the option to choose an energy-saving low-emissions vehicle. And the more people who make that choice, the more the planet will benefit.  Government Fleet Managers know that vehicles in their fleet must adapt to the people utilizing them.  Providing choice and options to the Municipal Marketplace is Gresham Ford Fleet's mission.  "Providing a truly fabulous value to the taxpayer benefits us all" says Bess Wills, Gresham Ford General Manager.  Portlanders are very conscience about their environmental impact and the three different power train options for alternative fuel vehicles help to make the endeavor possible and easy.   Instead of developing only one type of electrified vehicle and expecting everyone to adapt their lifestyle to the car, Ford offers the power of choice – a plan that allows us to come to market with three different types of electrified power trains that meet the broadest range of customer needs.
