The Town of Plainville, Conn., is slated to add a plug-in Ford Fusion hybrid to its fleet in August.
According to a Hartford Courant report, the town council recently signed off on the purchase, which will be funded, in part, by state grants. Town Manager Robert Lee said Plainville already has a Toyota Camry hybrid, and the town is ‘looking to lessen our dependence on oil.’
The report also notes the state recently installed two electric vehicle charging stations in Plainville.
