Vehicle Types and Use 2022

The DAS Fleet and Parking Services program manages 4,300 DAS-owned vehicles and provides policy oversight to more than 3,000 light duty fleet vehicles (10,000-pound Gross Vehicle Weight and under) owned by other agencies.

In 2022, fossil fuel-powered vehicles (e.g., gasoline and diesel) continued to represent the largest component of the enterprise light-duty vehicle fleet. More fuel-efficient vehicles, however, are a rapidly growing share of the fleet. These include lower-emission and hybrid vehicles, along with plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and fully electric vehicles (ZEVs). 

DAS purchases approximately 700 vehicles during a typical biennium. The agency plans to add 50 to 100 ZEVs in the 2023-2025 biennium. Other agencies are actively pursuing ZEVs for their fleet. Since 2022, the share of ZEVs in the state fleet has grown to between 60-65 vehicles in early 2024.  

Following Oregon laws, by 2025, unless a state agency finds it is infeasible for a ZEV to meet the specific use for which a vehicle will be purchased or leased, the agency shall purchase or lease ZEVs for all new state light-duty vehicle purchases and leases.
