DETROIT -- General Electric Co. will buy 25,000 electric vehicles, almost half of them from General Motors Co., by 2015, in what will be the biggest EV order to date.
EVs will make up at least half of GE's 30,000-car fleet, as well as leased vehicles from its GE Capital unit, the company said.
GM's portion of the order is for 12,000 vehicles, including the 2011 Chevrolet Volt.
Terms weren't disclosed.
GE said it will order from other automakers as they "expand their electric vehicle portfolios."
