Cost-Effective Transition to EV Fleet
The Los Angeles County Sanitation District is leading the transition to electric vehicles, recently purchasing 22 Tesla Model 3 sedans to update its fleet. The agency acquired the electric vehicles at a significant discount - just $30,625 per car after rebates and incentives. That's over $300,000 in savings for the purchase.
Tesla Streamlines Order and Delivery
According to Fleet Manager Dave Bolderoff, Tesla's efficient order fulfillment and responsive customer service outshone other automakers. While the agency typically waits months for vehicles from legacy brands, Tesla delivered the Model 3 fleet rapidly with an effortless purchasing process.
"Legacy OEMs need to step up their game," said Bolderoff. "Thanks Tesla for providing another option. Hopefully, this motivates legacy OEMs to follow suit."
The Future is Electric
With range, performance, and affordability improving, electric vehicles like the Model 3 are increasingly attractive options for fleet use. As more municipalities and companies switch to EVs, automakers will need to focus their efforts on electrification to stay competitive.
For the Los Angeles County Sanitation District, the Tesla fleet marks a sustainable step toward emissions-free waste management. As other agencies make the transition as well, health and environmental benefits will compound across the region.
