Evaluating the Use of Hybrid Vehicles in Municipal Fleets

A recent post on the Crossroads blog, a collaborative effort among MnDOT’s Office of Research & Innovation, the University of Minnesota’s Center for Transportation Studies, and the Minnesota Local Road Research Board, delved into the use of hybrid vehicles in municipal fleets.

Researchers sought to determine the fuel consumption benefits of hybrid utility vehicles for municipal fleets. The research team aimed to determine what routes and usages generated high fuel consumption in representative Minnesota municipal fleet activities, which vehicle technology delivered lower consumption on chosen routes, and the basic cost-effectiveness of technologies in specific uses.
