The City of Elk River made the cover of the July/August edition of Minnesota Cities magazine, a publication by the League of Minnesota Cities, for the addition of an electronic vehicle to the city’s fleet. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) features two electric motors and a gasoline engine which work together to ensure optimal performance depending on the driving conditions, all while reducing emissions and saving money. Environmental Coordinator, Amanda Bednar (pictured) says the city signed a three year lease for the Outlander PHEV, and multiple departments are using it with the goal of determining whether or not this, or other electric vehicles should become a permanent addition to the city’s fleet.
