Lebanon's First Electric Vehicle

In line with our environmental ethic the City has leased its first electric vehicle. It is a Nissan Leaf Plus, shown here with Department of Public Works Director Jim Donison, and has a range of 226 miles on a charge. 

“This is the first electric vehicle here at the DPW. The transportation industry is transforming and this will include our DPW fleet in the future – so we need to be ready and this is a start,” says Donison. 

From an environmental standpoint – net greenhouse gasses emitted – the car gets the equivalent of about 110 MPG. “When we get the rest of the DPW on solar power that MPG will increase dramatically,” said Tad Montgomery, Energy and Facilities Manager. 

This car will never need an oil change, air filter change, or spark plug swap. Look for it zipping silently around town.
