    The Government's promising to ditch diesel-powered ministerial cars and is immediately buying six new electric SUVs for the fleet

    The Government's promising to ditch diesel-powered ministerial cars and is immediately buying six new electric SUVs for the fleet


    That'll mean roughly 40 per cent of the 72-ministerial Crown fleet is either fully electric, or a plug-in hybrid vehicle.

    That's an increase of two per cent from when the Government came into power in 2017.

    It 's planning to replace the remaining diesel-powered cars with a greener option over the next two years.
