Good news for public fleets in Western Washington interested in electric vehicles!
The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (DES) recently completed a new bid for the 2016 Nissan LEAF and the 2017 Chevy Volt. Why is this important? It means that interested public fleets in Washington can use the DES agreement for both electric vehicles as a template, adapting the bid’s specifications and prices to fit their own needs.
In short, the state contract provides public fleets with a convenient and cost-effective option to purchase the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt, saving money (and reducing pollution) along the way.
Both of the agreements have a lot to get excited about, so let’s dive into the details:

Those who own a Nissan LEAF are among the most loyal of car buyers, and things likely won’t be different for the 2016 model. To reflect demand for a greater battery range, the newest version of the LEAF comes with two different battery configurations:
DES secured significant savings on their new contract with pricing for the S model starting at $20,734 and SV pricing at $25,642, making these cars much less expensive than before. Bellevue Nissan is the new contract holder.

The 2017 model year Chevy Volt is a brand new car to Washington. While the 2nd generation Volt debuted in some markets last year, this is the first opportunity Washington has to purchase this version of the Volt. Among the many enhancements to the new Volt, the most notable are:
Despite all this added functionality, the new Volt comes in at a competitive price on the DES agreement: $33,859.
