Electrification Coalition's Sam Ori discusses new road map for vehicle fleets

Last week, GE announced it would purchase 25,000 electric vehicles by 2015 -- the largest purchase in electric vehicle history. Will fleet sales give the electric vehicle industry the boost it needs? During today's OnPoint, Sam Ori, director of policy at the Electrification Coalition, discusses a new report that lays out a road map for fleet electrification. He explains why electrification of fleets is cost-competitive and discusses how short-term government subsidies will help the industry significantly expand its reach.
