  3. First electric vehicle joins City of Bunbury’s fleet

Published 06 February 2023

City of Bunbury Coordinator Infrastructure Business Services Karen McQueen, Manager Waste Operations and Infrastructure Business Services Corrie Nottle and Environmental Sustainability Officer Saphron Wheeler with the City’s first electric vehicle.

The City of Bunbury is electrifying efforts to reduce its carbon footprint by adding its first electric vehicle to its fleet.
The Nissan Leaf is 100 per cent electric and has quickly become the preferred vehicle of choice as a pool car among City staff.
It comes as the City makes progress on preparing its Sustainability and Environment Strategy, which will include targets and actions to reduce the City’s corporate emissions to net zero and improve overall environmental sustainability in Bunbury.
At 100 per cent electric, the new vehicle does not produce any tailpipe emissions and it can improve air quality and noise pollution, contributing to a safer and healthier environment for our community.
The vehicle will also ultimately save the City money on maintenance and servicing, fuel and ongoing costs with the running cost per kilometre for a Nissan Leaf just 15 cents.
The City has also just taken possession of two electric path sweepers, further bolstering its sustainability efforts.
