Driving into a green future


Goodwin is proud to introduce two new electric vehicles to our fleet of cars, marking a significant step in our commitment to creating a cleaner and more sustainable future.

After receiving a grant under the Zero Electric Vehicle (ZEV) program from the ACT Government, two Joylong EA6 fully electric 12 seater mini buses have been added to our fleet, to be used by Day Clubs.

‘We are grateful to the ACT Government for providing this grant’, said CEO Stephen Holmes.

‘The new ZEV vehicles will help slash the carbon footprint accumulated by Day Club’s daily transport needs, and in the long term we can expect to benefit from cheaper refuelling costs and reduced vehicle maintenance.’

Clients at Monash Day Club have been the first to trail the new buses, using them for pick-ups, drop-offs and transport to daily healthy-ageing activities.

‘Two electric charging stations on-site free the staff up from having to refuel every week’, said Maxine Folkard, Day Club Team Leader at Monash.

‘Both staff and clients are enjoying the buses and have especially noticed how smooth and quiet they are’.

CEO Stephen Holmes said, ‘We at Goodwin are wary of our contribution to the environment and are very proud to be one of the first ACT businesses leading the pack on this sustainable initiative’.
