(b) It is not currently possible to estimate total cost of leasing this number of electric vehicles, since this will depend on the models made available, and associated costs.
(4) The Territory joined the Commonwealth Government's Fleet Services Contract (FSC) in April 2015 as a value for money and efficient way of procuring passenger and light commercial vehicles. Vehicles procured under the FSC are leased, with the lease provider being sgfleet, and the Commonwealth Bank as financier.
The Territory has introduced an annual bulk order process under the FSC whereby all passenger and light commercial vehicles with leases expiring in the upcoming financial year are identified by sgfleet, along with a matrix of vehicles that represent value for money across different sectors (e.g. small, medium, large passenger vehicles). This matrix is based on a similar recommended vehicle listing prepared by sgfleet for the Commonwealth, and is customised to meet specific Territory requirements. Directorates indicate which replacement vehicles they require to be delivered in the upcoming financial year, and sgfleet places orders with manufacturers.
It is anticipated that this established bulk order leasing process will be applied to procuring electric vehicles for the Territory. Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate contract manages the Territory's FSC participation, and is currently working with sgfleet to identify manufacturers with capacity to meet the Territory's electric vehicle requirements.
(5) It is not possible to provide a total cost of procuring and maintaining electric vehicles in the numbers required under the Action Plan since it is unclear at this stage which manufacturers will be providing vehicles, and what their maintenance arrangements and costs will be. However, one indicator of possible electric vehicle fleet costs is provided by sgfleet's costings for a small electric vehicle currently available in the Australian market in small numbers, and anticipated to be more widely available soon. That electric vehicle has a manufacturer's price of approximately $45,000. sgfleet has calculated a monthly rental for this vehicle of $1,065 (inclusive of maintenance) taken over 60 months. This monthly rental figure does not include the cost of charging infrastructure.
