New electric car charge stations for Knox

Council has installed two electric vehicle charging stations at the Civic Centre in Wantirna South, providing a more sustainable future for local drivers.

The charge points are available for the community to use for free, and will also be used to power Council’s three new electric fleet vehicles.

Council recently updated three of its fleet vehicles with all-electric vehicles with the goal of moving to a more sustainable future, as electric vehicles become more available and more affordable.

The first fleet vehicle Council ordered was the Hyundai Ioniq Electric, with plans to order two Nissan Leaf cars when released in Australia mid-year.

Mayor Jake Keogh said Council is committed to reducing greenhouse emissions and this is just one initiative towards that goal.

‘There is, rightly, an expectation in the community that government should lead the way in the area of sustainability and improved environmental outcomes,’ Mayor Keogh said.

‘One of the ways we can do that is by providing services and infrastructure that open up more choices for residents who are looking for cleaner and more environmentally sustainable options, including the use of electric vehicles.’

The Hyundai Ioniq Electric can plug into a 10amp electric power point, as well as the Type 2 charge point.
