There are approximately three million law enforcement, fire and EMS first responders operating over 600,000 emergency vehicles in the United States. For over 20 years, First Priority Group has been serving emergency and specialty vehicle fleets by providing custom vehicle solutions to meet their needs. In addition, the company has been extensively involved in delivery and service of electric vehicles since 2015 positioning FPG as the ideal innovator bringing electrification to its markets.
For communities, businesses and other organizations seeking to meet strategic clean energy goals and reducing transportation costs, electrifying a fleet is a critical step. Adopting EVs for every day use is becoming easier and more cost-effective and provides critical benefits. Environmental benefits include reducing greenhouse gas emissions which improves public and employee health. Financial benefits include decreasing maintenance costs by approximately 40% and paying the equivalent of less than $1 per gallon of gas. Additionally, FPG can assist fleets to take advantage of private and public grants, tax credits and state/federal incentives to lower the investment costs of EVs and charging equipment.
Increase in availability and competitive pricing. OEMs shifting investment from internal combustion engines (ICE) to alternative fuel. OEMs now offering all-electric light, medium and heavy-duty electric trucks including BYD, Deimler (Freightliner), Volvo, Navistar, Mitsubishi, Tesla, Ford F-150, GM Chevy Silverado, and more.
Favorable policy deployment. Multiple states have adopted goals for zero emission vehicle (ZEV) deployment including incentives for both vehicles and infrastructure. All major markets have fuel economy and emissions regulations in place. Governors in NJ and NY have both announced ambitious goals for fleet electrification.
Emergency response vehicles on city and county streets are focused on safety and saving lives. By transitioning to electric vehicles, fleets will more effectively serve their mission by providing a safe, emissions-free ride for first responders and their communities.
