Electric city
Indianapolis wants to become the first major city to replace its entire fleet with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles to reduce U.S. reliance on foreign-produced fuels. Mayor Greg Ballard signed an executive order last week mandating that Indianapolis replace its current sedans with electric vehicles. The city hopes to complete the switch by 2025 and plans to ask automakers to develop a plug-in hybrid police car.
