​​The City of Canterbury Bankstown is taking steps to become greener and more sustainable, following the introduction of five electric vehicles (EVs) in its fleet.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the new Hyundai IONIQ electric vehicles have replaced petrol cars, with savings in maintenance and fuel costs in excess of $11,000 a year.

"More than 10,000 residents told us in surveys, they want Canterbury-Bankstown to be greener and cleaner by 2028, with more environmentally-friendly initiatives that help protect our natural environment," he said.

"This is another step to bring us closer to realising this aspiration.”

Mayor Asfour said the phasing out of petrol and diesel trucks and cars will bring many benefits to the community.

​"The uptake of low emission and energy efficient vehicles can help build a more resilient city, with many additional benefits, including better air quality, less health issues and a higher level of amenity,” he said.

"We are even going a step further by investigating whether members of the local community could be able to hire the EVs.

"As a Smart City, we are well placed to look at what we can do as an organisation to fill the leadership void, to lead by example and support our community in making this technology more accessible, better understood and trusted."

By the end of the year, Council is looking to have 10 EVs in its fleet.
