The Miami Marlins showed off on Tuesday 26 new electric vehicles, which will be used as ambulances, on the field and for maintenance at Marlins Park.
In keeping with the park's economically friendly feeling, the fleet of electric vehicles will be used at the park, and officials said they can go up to 60 miles without needing a charge.
Team officials and Miami Fire Rescue conducted a final inspection of the vehicles Tuesday.
"You know what they say, 'You're kicking the tires'? That's actually what we're doing," said Assistant Chief Pete Gomez, of Miami Fire Rescue.
Three of the vehicles will serve as ambulances, and fire officials checked out their sirens and emergency lights.
"It's state-of-the-art. It's brand-new. For lack of a better term, they're cool," Gomez said.
Some final preparation work included fitting the vehicles with plastic panels, making sure the tire pressure was just right and testing the "green" batteries.
The fleet includes 10 field vehicles to help carry equipment around the park, and another 10 are being used for maintenance.
The ambulances cost about $25,000 each, while the other vehicles cost $12,000 to $20,000 apiece.
The county put in the purchase order, but officials said the team is helping to pick up some of the cost.
