Luther Fleet

electric vehicle- top image

The majority of Luther's passenger fleet vehicles are gasoline-electric hybrid sedans (Honda Civic, Toyota Prius, Ford C-Max). Every year Luther College calculates its carbon footprint, including transportation-related emissions. Moving to hybrid vehicles has cut the passenger fleet's carbon footprint in half.

Additional info:

  • Luther utilizes some electric vehicles in its maintenance fleet.
  • Luther recycles all of the cafeteria’s used vegetable oil into biodiesel for use in some of the college's lawn maintenance vehicles.
  • The recycling and composting program uses a compressed natural gas pickup which is 25 percent less carbon intensive than gasoline.
