The City of Greenville operated and evaluated 15 electric vehicles from July 1980 through June 1983. Four Battronic minivans and 11 EVA station wagons were operated by eight different departments, serving widely varying administrative needs. The project goals were: (1) to conserve petroleum fuel, (2) to learn electric vehicle technology, (3) to enhance public awareness of electric vehicles, (4) to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of electric vehicles, and (5) to achieve a net financial saving for the City. This report addresses these goals and discusses why these goals were or were not met in sections devoted to management, costs, operating data, maintenance, operator acceptance, and public awareness.
