Portland's first electric vehicle strategy, Electric Vehicles: The Portland Way was developed in 2010 to prepare for the launch of the first widely available electric passenger vehicles. The electric vehicle market landscape has changed significantly over the past six years. The 2017 Electric Vehicle Strategy is an updated version that establishes the City's current electric vehicle-related priorities and identifies the actions the City will take before the end of 2020 to further the electrification of the transportation sector. The 2017 EV Strategy is scheduled to be considered by Council on Wednesday, December 14.
