REV Group, Inc. (NYSE: REVG) announces its subsidiary REV Ambulance Group Orlando, Inc’s. contract with the U.S General Services Administration (GSA) has been amended to include state-of-the-art, zero-emissions battery electric ambulances from Wheeled Coach® and Leader®.
“To help provide a more sustainable future, our priority is to develop and offer alternative fuel vehicle solutions for our customers,” said Anoop Prakash, President, REV Ambulance Group. “We are thrilled our contract with the GSA has been updated to include our zero-emissions ambulances and we look forward to producing and delivering electric vehicles to agencies across the US.”
The addition of zero-emissions ambulances to the GSA contract is well-timed, with the recent passing of the federal infrastructure bill that contained significant investments in support of electric vehicles. The battery electric Type II ambulances utilize a Ford Transit T350 Chassis with Lightning eMotors electric conversion. The High Roof Transit vans offer up to 86kWh of battery capacity that can be charged via Level 2 AC charging or DC fast charging. The high roof and added length of the T350 increases the patient care space.
GSA is the mandatory source for non-tactical vehicles purchased by executive agencies in the United States. The Federal Agencies with access to this contract include the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Veterans Health Administration, the National Park Service, and the Indian Health Services.
GSA provides centralized procurement for the federal government, managing a nationwide real estate portfolio of nearly 370 million rentable square feet and overseeing approximately $75 billion in annual contracts. GSA’s mission is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services across government.
