Verizon Adds Hybrids to Fleet

April 24, 2007

NEW YORK – Verizon is adding 100 hybrid-electric sedans to its fleet of service vehicles.Following its announcement last month of a pilot project to deploy 13 gasoline- and electric-powered service vans, Verizon is now ordering 100 hybrid-engine sedans for use in five states. In addition, in New Jersey and Texas, Verizon is trialing the use of 20-percent biodiesel fuel to power service vehicles. Also in those two states, Verizon will use environmentally friendly lubricants made from vegetable oils as part of the process to cut sections of fiber-optic cable where the company is installing and maintaining its digital all-fiber-optic FiOS services.
