A recent WUSA9 report shows that Montgomery County has purchased nine Mustang Mach-Es for use by county employees, each one coasting roughly $47,000. WUSA9 did an investigation on the purchase and use of the electric vehicles after one of its viewers spotted a 2021 model Ford Mustang Mach-E being driven by a county employee inspecting a sidewalk.
When asked why the Mustang was chosen over other less expensive electric cars, Montgomery County General Services Director David Dice, who purchased the vehicles, told WUSA 9 it was because of the all-wheel-drive safety option. It is also estimated that vehicles will save the county $7,000 each, over the next six years. Dice added, “this particular unit is intended for a highway inspector, a transit inspector, we also have field inspectors with environmental protection and other departments.”
The Montgomery County Deptment of Environmental Protection will hold a “Go Electric” event on Saturday, March 19 from 10am-4pm at Montgomery County Rockville. The event will showcase the “future of electric power—from electric vehicles to power equipment and solar power”.
The free outdoor event will display, and have experts explaining, the benefits of electric cars, battery-powered yard equipment, solar power, small appliance recycling and energy incentives.
The Mustang Mach-E can go 0-60 in 5.2 seconds.
