Midwest DRIVES Initiative


Midwest DRIVES is a US Department of Energy funded program to offer fleets free demonstrations of advanced and alternative fuel and technology vehicles. The demos come with data logging equipment. Data driven case studies will help fleet administrators decide whether vehicles will work for their operations.

Midwest DRIVES offers fleets opportunities to test a range of alternative fuel vehicles in day-to-day operations. The initiative includes:

  • FREE demos of alternative fuel vehicles (including CNG, Propane, Hybrid, EV, Efficiency, and Biofuel vehicles in light, medium, and heavy-duty applications)
  • FREE data logging on demo vehicles provided by FleetCarma (vehicle performance details to guide your decisions)
  • FREE case studies & analysis comparing alt. fuel vehicles vs. conventional vehicles on your routes, with your drivers.
  • Technical support & resources from industry experts and experienced Clean Cities staff in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana.
