The City of Ballarat does not have electric vehicles currently in its fleet. It has been purchasing Hybrid vehicles whilst analysing the full cost of purchasing electric vehicles. At this stage electric vehicles are not considered appropriate due to costs however, this option is continually evaluated. The City of Ballarat has a mix of Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry and soon to add Toyota Rav4.
The City of Ballarat purchased two Camry Hybrids in 2016. It now has nine in total with another due to be delivered this month. We are also looking to add three more by the end of financial year. When vehicles are purchased by the City of Ballarat, the viability of electric vehicles are evaluated. It is anticipated that we will eventually purchase electric vehicles in the future and we are looking at this option for all plant replacements.
