Australia Post’s Port Melbourne Business Hub will receive two electric Renault Kangoo Maxi ZE vans by mid-2014. The electric vans will be powered by accredited GreenPower from renewable energy sources.
The electric Kangoo vans are not currently sold in Australia but are widely used in Europe.
The alternative fuel initiatives so far implemented by Australia Post include:
- 740 electric bikes that have replaced motorbikes at various locations
- More than 100 hybrid vehicles introduced to our fleet to replace existing six cylinder vehicles, reducing emissions by over 30 per cent
- 25 hybrid trucks introduced into StarTrack’s fleet of vehicles, improving fuel efficiency by 20 per cent improvement on average.
