Description:Italys public sector has been mandated to raise the share of electric, hybrid, and natural-gas fuelled vehicles it purchases to 50% of the total new vehicle procurement over the next 5 years. The decree covers state-owned service companies, such as utilities and postal and telecommunications services, as well as national and regional government bodies and towns and cities with a population above 25,000. Given the size and replacement of their fleets, the environment ministry calculates that by 2003, the measure would put some 60,000 "clean" vehicles on Italys roads.
