Australia: ACT welcomes first electric vehicle

The Australian Capital Territory Government has rolled out the first on its 10 electric vehicles across the ACT Government.

The Mitsubishi i MiEV was selected following a short trial and replaces a conventional petrol driven pool car. It produces zero greenhouse gas emissions and travels up to 100 km between charges.

Chief minister and minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Katy Gallagher said territory and municipal services (TAMS) has welcomed a new Mitsubishi i MiEV electric car into its fleets.

It also demonstrates the ACT Government’s commitment to working towards reducing the environmental impacts associated with conducting business through the use of sustainable transport.

“This includes reducing the number of vehicles in its fleet and replacing vehicles with fuel efficient, four cylinder and environmentally friendly models including hybrid Vehicles,” she said.

While the vehicle will use standard electricity, the trial will be used to determine how we can use 100 per cent renewable energy to power the fleet in the future.
