There aren’t a lot of electric cars out there. They account for about 1 percent of U.S. auto sales. Still, if you want one, you can get one. There are Teslas and Volts and Leafs and Bolts. That’s not the case with trucks and vans. There are virtually no larger electric vehicles available on a mass-production basis. That’s part of why Seattle has joined with 30 other cities across the country to ask automakers about the cost and feasibility of providing electric vans, pickups and trucks to, gradually, replace the cities’ fleets of vehicles.
