City of Sudbury goes electric with purchase of four Tesla Model 3’s

The City of Sudbury, Ontario has taken the first big step towards electrifying their fleet of vehicles by purchasing four Tesla Model 3’s.

In a press release celebrating Earth Day and their efforts to become a net-zero community, the city announced it had purchased four fully electric vehicles (EVs). Devin Arthur, EV Society Chapter President in Sudbury, confirmed in a statement to Electric Autonomy the vehicles purchased were Model 3’s.

The city plans to add the vehicles to its Paramedic Services fleet for non-emergency calls, a use which may be a first in Canada if not the world. The vehicles are expected to be on the road in May.

This purchase adds to the three hybrid ambulances already in service in the community, with delivery of three more expected in the coming months.

Sudbury’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) was first adopted in September 2020 and calls for 100% of the city’s fleet to be electric by 2035.
