- All authorized users of New York State Marketplace (e.g. municipalities & state agencies) can participate.
Bid Details for 3rd Round:
- Instead of choosing a single type of vehicle, they will bid for a generic set of min. specifications to encourage competition between automakers, ideally resulting in lower price.
- 3 separate aggregate bids will be awarded: plug-in hybrids, plug-in hybrid minivans, & pure battery EVs
- Once a bid is awarded, municipalities and agencies will then be responsible for contacting the winning bidder to complete a purchase.
Description: The goal of this initiative is to reduce the costs associated with adding zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) to gov't fleets across NYS. The first aggregate bid resulted in an 11% discount on Chevy Volts. The second round included a 13% discount on the Prius Prime and a 28% discount on a Nissan Leaf. Significant savings are anticipated in this round as well.
