Thank you for your enquiry which was received on 23 February 2018.

 

You asked:

We respond to requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

Fleet cars are selected on the basis of their emissions, health and safety
considerations, operational effectiveness and whole life cost. Regular
vehicle reviews are undertaken to ensure best value, with vehicle choice
lists being updated as needed, and wherever possible selecting new greener
technology such as hybrids and pure electric vehicles.

 

The following tables shows a breakdown cars by fuel type (2016, 2017,
2018, anticipated deliveries)
