Motor vehicle fleet

electric carThe University is committed to reducing the footprint of our motor vehicle fleet. The fleet consists of approximately 99 vehicles and the University has set fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission targets.

Over the past 6 years we've replaced 6 cylinder petrol vehicles with efficient 4 cylinders vehicles. We are now replacing petrol vehicles with diesel which now account for 60% of the passenger fleet.
