Oct. 14, 2022—The fleet at Fort Knox, a United States Army installation in Kentucky, has added its first fully electric vehicle. 

According to a post on the U.S. Army website, Christina Cortez is the transportation specialist and post fleet manager, and she has ordered nine electric vehicles in total for use around the post. Additionally, six plug-in hybrid vehicles will eventually join the feet.

Cortez said the ultimate goal is for the fleet to be fully electric. She also said that she was awarded a contract for charging stations recently that will allow for installation to occur directly at Fort Knox. 

The electric cargo van that Fort Knox received on Sept. 26 will run for around 126 miles on a single charge.
