State of Ohio Considering Bids for Plug-In Electric and Hybrid Vehicles for State Term Contract

On June 15, 2020, Ohio Department of Administrative Services (ODAS) announced an opportunity for providers of six types of electric drivetrain vehicles. State departments and any local jurisdiction in Ohio can purchase vehicles on the state-term contract without going through a competitive procurement process. Bids were opened July 13 and an announcement of one or more winners will be forthcoming.

ODAS specified six vehicle types of categories:

  • Fully electric sedan – 100 miles minimum range

  • Fully electric SUV – 100 miles minimum range

  • Partial Hybrid Electric Plug-In Sedan – 20 miles minimum range

  • Partial Hybrid Electric Plug-In SUV – 20 miles minimum range

  • Sedan Hybrid – 40 mpg fuel economy minimum

  • SUV Hybrid – 40 mpg fuel economy minimum

“The State of Ohio is committed to supporting clean fuel vehicles through our fleet management and procurement programs, said Bill Teets, Director of Communications for Ohio Department of Administrative Services. “Bidding out for electric and hybrid sedans and SUVs are beginning steps. We’re open to electric pickups, and I would certainly expect us to continue exploring how best to proceed on alternative fuels.”

“We deeply appreciate the Department’s leadership,” said Sam Spofforth, Executive Director of Clean Fuels Ohio. “Bidding and selecting these fully electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid classes is a great step forward. Once winners are selected, this will be a great resource for state and local government fleets all over Ohio.”
