Just in time for Earth Day, The Miami-Dade Aviation Department received its first four all-electric vehicles this month, with 13 more scheduled for arrival next year and 24 more expected over the next five years.
The Nissan Leaf 40-kilowatt cars are being assigned to employees whose job duties require the most frequent travel to and from MIA, such as supervisors in MDAD’s Airside and Maintenance divisions.
MDAD also plans to transition its fleet of 38 gas buses to electric vehicles that will shuttle employees and travelers between the airport’s terminal, employee parking garage, and remote economy park and ride lot.
The electrifying news is just the latest way that MIA is reducing its carbon footprint and saving millions of dollars in energy and water consumption annually. To learn more, visit the Fly Green at MIA webpage.
