EcoWorld is making its environmental footprint on the Australian property market with the announcement that Yarra One residents will have access to Tesla vehicles.

It will be part of what is billed as a Victorian first, sustainable car-sharing model.

Located in South Yarra, a suburb that boasts a walk score of 92, Yarra One will be a 4-star green building.

The introduction of Tesla vehicles adds another layer of sustainability and future-proofing the building.

EcoWorld's Cliff Tan said car-sharing service is growing rapidly in popularity and the decision to purchase electric cars was one that is inline with the brands core values.

EcoWorld adopts an environmentally-responsible approach in all of its project so it was important that we future-proofed Yarra One, particularly as more and more individuals turn towards electric vehicles and opt for car-sharing,” he said.

According to a UBS global autos survey, one in six new cars in the world will be electric by 2025, with predictions that by the middle of the next decade, global sales of electric vehicles should hit 16.5 million.

As well as Tesla cars being available for residents to use, residents will also have the option to include a charging point within their designated car space, as a means of future proofing the building.

Residents will be able to book the Teslas through the body corporate.

Melbourne’s inner suburbs have the lowest car ownership levels in the state with  7,470 Stonnington dwellings  reporting no vehicle ownership, with over 51% of Stonnington residents living in a flat or apartment.

South Yarra is the sixth most walkable city in the state, with residents having access to everything they need right on their doorstep, so a car isn’t needed for daily errands.
