Additional Guidance

Federal agencies are mandated by the Energy Policy Act (EPAct), Executive Order 13693, and the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) to purchase alternative fuel vehicles, increase consumption of alternative fuels, and reduce petroleum consumption. In addition, the May 2011 Presidential Memorandum--Federal Fleet Performance requires all new light duty vehicle purchases or leases to be AFVs by December 31, 2015.

Agencies wishing to buy AFVs may submit an order through GSA's AutoChoice online ordering tool.  Visit the GSA Automotive site for more information on purchasing vehicles, and GSA Fleet for information on vehicle leasing.  Agencies interested in leasing AFVs and wanting more information should contact their servicing GSA Fleet office, call (703) 605-5630, or e-mail AFVteam@gsa.gov.
