Of the 105 vehicles that will be added to the AT&T; fleet, there will be "25 compressed natural gas vans, 65 hybrid electric Ford Escapes and Toyota Priuses, and 15 hybrid electric conversion work trucks." Of course, one can imagine that 105 vehicles is a drop in the bucket of what must a huge corporate fleet. So while we applaud the effort, we hope that if this initial trial is successful it will lead to more significant changes in fleet efficiency. And if AT&T; has any doubts about the potential benefits of vehicle efficiency, they can look no farther than Wal-Mart, which has committed to doubling its fleet efficiency in the next ten years, saving the company over $300 million a year.
