GE invests in electric fleet

General Electric, Fairfield, Conn., announced it will purchase 25,000 electric vehicles by 2015 for its own fleet and through its Capital Fleet Services business — a move the company claims is the largest-ever single electric vehicle commitment.

GE will convert at least half of its 30,000-vehicle global fleet and will partner with fleet customers to deploy another 25,000 electric vehicles by 2015. GE will initially purchase 12,000 GM vehicles, beginning with the Chevrolet Volt in 2011
