NV Energy adds electric hybrid trucks to fleet

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

NV Energy will get to plug-in five new hybrid electric trucks presented to the power utility Wednesday.

The Dodge Ram 1500 pickup trucks are the newest vehicles added to the Las Vegas-based company's fleet.

Officials with the Chrysler Group handed the keys to the new vehicles to NV Energy as part of a national demonstration program for "evaluation and testing" over the next three years.

The trucks will have the ability to plug-in and charge while also running on gasoline.

The new trucks come as the SEMA show, which gathers thousands of car accessory and part vendors, comes to Las Vegas this week.
