New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) are pleased to announce the addition of four more electric vehicle (EV) suppliers on the All-of-Government (AoG) motor vehicles contract.
This will give government agencies more choice as they work towards having an emissions-free government fleet.
The new suppliers are Kia Motors, Tesla, Volvo and MG.
In total there are now eighteen vehicle suppliers on the motor vehicles contract with fourteen of those suppliers able to provide EVs for purchase.
The new catalogue offers government agencies the choice of 19 models of battery EVs available, an increase of 9 more models. There will also be 11 models of plug in hybrid EVs added onto the panel.
The New Zealand Government is committed to achieving positive environmental outcomes through sustainable procurement by buying low emissions and low waste goods and services.
This also supports the Government’s goal to reduce emissions from the transport sector. The overall target is that, where practicable, all government light-vehicles will be emissions-free by 2025/26. This supports the goal to a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.
