Shoalhaven City Council will today introduce its new fleet of electric vehicles.

Mayor AMANDA FINDLEY says three Hyundai Kona Electric cars are to be trialled." And the trial is to work out if there are cost benefits to council to having electric vehicles in the fleet. And that's in relation to the savings on fuel, to fuel up the electric car and of course then savings on the maintenance of the car."

The cars offer a range of 440 kilometres and can be charged using a household power point, although they cost alot more than the petrol-driven models, retailing at around 60-thousand dollars each.
