Australian Government Considering EVs For Own Fleet
According to the canberratimes.com.au, as many as 65 member of Parliament and 15 ministers were ferried around in specially converted Holden Commodores, which were modified to run only on electricity by Melbourne-based company EV Engineering, and the general consensus is that they were smooth and quiet. This means that the EVs are 100% Australian and something they can and should be proud of.
Ian McCleave, CEO of EV Engineering said "We learned how we could maximise the car's effectiveness for COMCAR for example by installing additional charge spots in key locations and shortening charge times by using fast-charge and battery-switch technology [. . .] The trial has demonstrated that zero-emission electric cars can easily be integrated into the vehicle mix of a demanding fleet.''
