Electric vehicles in the government fleet

SAFA is leading the way with electric vehicles in the government fleet.

The State Government recently announced the launch of the Electric Vehicle Action Plan.

SAFA’s Fleet Division were part of the Steering Committee which developed South Australia’s Electric Vehicle Action Plan.  We will be working with government agencies to preference electric vehicles when replacing their current fleet vehicles.

Increasing the number of plug-in electric vehicles in the government motor vehicle fleet will enable the Government of South Australia to realise the benefits to the electricity network, reduce annual liquid fuel spend for transportation in the passenger and light commercial motor vehicle fleet, reduce tail-pipe emissions and to lead by example.

SAFA is bringing environmentally friendly, safe and innovative vehicles into the fleet and onto South Australian roads.
