As part of the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program (EVM) the City of Lacombe has added two new fully electric John Deer Gator TE’s to their fleet. The City received a $12,605.03 grant through the EVM Program to help cover a portion of the total cost. The new Gators will be used by the Parks Department.

This project was funded by the Government of Alberta.


The new Gators are a great addition to the City’s fleet. The purchase of the Gators shows the City’s interest in promoting environmental stewardship and sustainability. The City will now have the opportunity to learn and observe how the Gators perform throughout the year, and how they can be utilized.


The new electric Gators have several advantages compared to traditional gasoline powered units:

  1. Decreased fuel costs – The new Gators are more fuel efficient which will reduce fueling cost.
  2. Decreased maintenance costs – Electric vehicles typically have lower maintenance costs.
  3. Reduced GHG emissions – The Gators will not produce any direct GHG emissions during operation.
  4. Quieter – The Gators will be significantly quieter compared to similar gasoline powered units.

The City of Lacombe added two all-electric Gators to our operations, utilizing funding from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre,” Mayor Grant Creasey said. “I am hopeful these units will prove to be efficient and cost-effective. These units will be utilized in our substantial outdoor spaces and will be a welcome addition to those who may be particularly sensitive to traditional vehicles.”
