The General Services Administration says it will expand the number of hybrid vehicles in the federal fleet by up to 10,000 vehicles — a move that will save 1 million gallons of fuel per year for the life of these vehicles.

"Providing a hybrid federal fleet is an essential part of the GSA's commitment to making government agencies as efficient and effective as possible," said GSA acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini. "At a time when government needs to make every tax dollar count, GSA is committed to creating more energy efficiency and cost-saving opportunities like the fleet consolidation program that make government smarter and reduce our environmental footprint."

If agencies opt to participate in the program, the GSA will fund the incremental cost to replace eligible vehicles with new hybrid sedans.
