BMW of North America are being lended 20 BMW i3 electric vehicles to the NYC Parks Department in support of the TreesCount! After the census, the cars go back to BMW.
BMW of North America announced its support of NYC Parks for its TreesCount! 2015 program with 20 BMW i3 vehicles to use only for the census.
According to John Voelker from Green Car Reports. BMW sources reported: “The BMW i3 vehicles are on loan for the duration of the TreesCount! program.”
With these BMW i3 vehicles, TreesCount! staff and volunteers can easily travel throughout the five boroughs to map more than 600,000 street trees, helping to ensure a greener future for the City of New York, its residents and visitors.
“We are so grateful for BMW’s support as we conduct our third street tree census across New York City. The innovative BMW i3 vehicles are a perfect fit with the new technology and mapping tools we are launching during Trees Count! 2015,” said Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP, NYC Parks Commissioner.
After the census the vehicles go back to BMW. I wish they cooked stay with NYC Parks but whatever. Maybe NYC Parks can get 20 more electric cars to retire a gas one or 20.
