ACT Government car fleet

Under the ACT Government's Action Plan for Transition to Zero Emission Vehicles, all newly leased ACT Government passenger fleet vehicles will be zero emission vehicles from the financial year 2020/21, where fit for purpose.

The ACT Government advised that its car fleet has about 600 passenger vehicles that are suitable for replacement with zero emission vehicles.

On 31 December 2019 the fleet had 51 zero emission vehicles (28 battery EVs and 23 plug-in hybrid vehicles).  These included:

  • Nissan Leaf – 16 (EV)
  • Mitsubishi Outlander – 19 (PHEV)
  • Hyundai Ioniq – 15 (11 EV and 4 PHEV)
  • Renault Kangoo – 1 (EV)

The EVs in the government fleet will gradually enter the second-hand market in Canberra.  There were 8 zero emission vehicles with leases due to expire in the first half of 2020.
