Light Duty NGVs Now Available through U.S. GSA and 3rd Party Leasing
The U.S. Government Services Administration (GSA), Office of Federal Motor Vehicle Acquisitions, recently indicated that light duty CNG vehicles that are APPROVED by OEMs are now available for GSA fleets. The light duty definition extends to vehicles up to 14,000 lbs. This action greatly increases the number of NGVs available to Federal Agencies and follows a series of meetings initiated by NGVAmerica between the GSA and its members to discuss ways to expand NGV offerings. Federal Agencies must use GSA Schedule 751 commercial leasing of Natural Gas Vehicles to acquire these vehicles. Because GSA schedule 751 leasing is done through 3rd party-commercial leasing companies, Federal Agencies will be able to benefit from any available Federal and/or State tax credits.
