The City of Coral Gables recently introduced its new Green Fleet, 20 gas-free electric Nissan Leaf vehicles powered by batteries. These electric vehicles will not use a single drop of gas, which means no tailpipe, no fumes, and zero emissions into the environment.
Soon the public will see the Green Fleet on roads in the city being used by Parking Enforcement and other city departments for administrative use. By end of May, a fast-charging station for electric vehicles will be installed at City Hall.
The public will have use for this charging station at this location, capable of recharging electric vehicles up to 70 percent of its power in about 30 minutes. Additional electric car charging stations also are being installed at Parking Garage #2 (220 Aragon Ave.), Garage #4 (345 Andalusia Ave.) and Garage #6 (51 Aragon Ave.).
