Interested in an electric vehicle fleet?
We can help drive your transition to EVs. It’s mobility for a cleaner future.
At Origin, we believe transitioning to a lower carbon world doesn’t have to mean sacrifices.
Transport is at a crossroads, with the benefits of Electric Vehicles (EVs) being the smart way forward for road mobility. That’s why we’re leading the EV charge, directing the breadth of our network, scale and expertise towards enabling commercial transition to EVs to be smooth, supported and cost-effective.

The time is now for electric vehicles
Up to 70% less cost to run per km; with a cost on average of $0.04/km in electricity, compared to $0.14/km in fuel costs on a similarly driven combustion engine vehicle.
A typical EV charged using the average Aus grid electricity generates about 40% less emissions of CO2 equivalent per km compared with an equivalent petrol vehicle.
The average Australian passenger vehicle drives 12,100 km per annum or around 50 km per day. The average range of passenger EVs in Australia is approximately 400 km per day.
3-phase 22 kW EV chargers add 100 km of range after 55 minutes of charging.
As the world keeps changing we’re always looking for ways to change things for the better. And one of the ways we’re leading the charge is with Origin’s 360 EV.
We’re taking ‘good energy’ to the streets, quite literally, by helping businesses make the transition to electric powered vehicles that are affordable, reliable and convenient.
As one of Australia’s biggest energy companies, we know about change.
And by using renewable energy or carbon offsets for vehicle charging Origin 360EV can provide your business with cleaner transport, flexible charging solutions and with lower maintenance and fuel costs.
We’ve partnered with the experts, to create Origin 360 EV Fleet: our full-service electric fleet leasing program helping organisations drive their sustainability goals forward.

What EVs do you offer?
We offer a range of EVs from market leading suppliers. We’ll provide your business with a fit for purpose vehicle based on your needs.
If EVs are still charged from the grid, how is it cleaner?
A typical electric vehicle charged using the average Australian electricity grid mix generates about 40% fewer emissions of CO₂ per kilometre compared with an equivalent internal combustion engine vehicle.
What if I want my employees to be able to charge from their homes?
We can install EV chargers at the employee’s house, ensuring that the electricity used to power the EVs are tracked so that businesses reimburse employees for the electricity. This can be done in 2 ways:
- We provide extract reports of the electricity and associated cost used to power each vehicle, so that you can reimburse the employee through payroll or
- If the employee is an Origin Electricity customer, we can credit the electricity off the driver’s electricity bills and bill your business.
It’s important to note, dedicated off-street parking is a requirement so home charging isn’t possible for some employees. However, there are options to use public charging and currently there are over 2,000 EV chargers across Australia. We can assist in the management of public charging payments.
Can you help educate our staff on EV technology?
Yes, we can hold drive days for your organisation where employees can get behind the wheel and test drive the vehicle for themselves – and ask as many questions as they’d like.
How long does the typical charger take to charge an EV?
The charge time to add 100KM range differ according to the type of wall charger used. Based on vehicle energy efficiency of 20kWh/100KM, typical charge times are:
AC Level 1: Household power point
EV adaptor 8.7hrs
AC Level 2: Wall Charger
Single Phase (7kW) 2.7hrs
3 Phase (22kW) 55mins
DC Level 3: Rapid Charging
50kW 24 mins
120kW 10 mins
What does “carbon offset” mean?
Carbon offsetting can be used to ‘offset’ the emissions generated by the use of electricity to power electric vehicles through a range of verified greenhouse gas offsets. For every tonne of emission generated from your EV charging, we arrange for one tonne of emission reduction to occur.
This can be done through a range of activities including:
- Planting trees
Carbon offset projects can include planting whole forests to absorb the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
- Renewable energy
Investment in renewable energy including solar, wind and hydro energy is used to offset carbon emissions from non-renewable sources like coal, oil or natural gas.
- Projects to reduce emissions
Energy efficiency programs promoting products such as light globes and water-saving showerheads can help households save power, lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy bills.
What is an operating lease?
An operating lease is similar to a rental agreement in that you pay for the use of the vehicle for a set term. With this option, there’s no upfront capital investment requirements or residual risk at the end of the agreement. Fully managed operating leases include most of the vehicle running costs and we’ll outline those costs in our discussion.
