Ipswich Borough Council requires a 4 door electric car to replace a current vehicle. The Council’s Executive has resolved that in order to make the best use of available technology to reduce emissions from its fleet, in the most economically advantageous manner, the most appropriately fuel source for all new cars is electrically powered.


The Crown Commercial Services Framework Agreement – RM6060 has been used to identify suitable vehicles. This framework allows a comparison of vehicle specifications, pricing and selection of the vehicle most appropriate. The best value vehicle for IBC use was identified as the Hyundai Ioniq Hat 38.3 Kwh Electric


The decision made was to purchase this vehicle from Hyundai at a total cost of £24,020.19 after discount.
