An environmentally friendly vehicle is now part of the fleet of the state Department of Natural Resources. It’s a 2001 Ford Electric Ranger, powered by a lead acid battery that requires six to eight hours to fully charge. The pick-up has been used for running errands among the ten DNR buildings in Jefferson City. It’s on loan from the Environmental Protection Agency. Electric vehicles have abvious limits. Fully-charged, the truck travels only 50 to 60 miles and there are few charging stations in the state.
