BMS Direct Reduces Carbon Footprint with addition of Tesla Model 3 EV

“310 Miles – Longest Range on the market.” – Tesla Model 3

LYNCHBURG, VA – August 24, 2018 – BMS Direct (BMS) continues to take steps to minimize its environmental impact while reducing their carbon footprint with purchase of an electric vehicle. BMS’s new 100% electric Tesla Model 3 replaced a Honda Civic, and has a range of up to 310 miles at full charge. This vehicle will decrease BMS’s fleet emissions and is estimated to reduce BMS’s fleet fuel costs by $500 to $1,000 per year. “We are pleased to add our first EV to our fleet. Taking initiative means doing something without waiting to be told; rather we are taking action because it’s the right thing to do, thus providing a model for others to follow.” said James LaPrade, President of BMS Direct, Inc.

BMS promotes environmental conservation amongst employees, vendors, suppliers, and clients. They believe taking simple actions to reduce their own carbon footprint will have the power to influence many more businesses, customers, and people. The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects that sales of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles (that have both a battery and a combustion engine) will account for 9% of total light-duty vehicle sales by 2025. The predicted increase in electric vehicles brings both opportunities and challenges for companies like BMS.
