Another record breaker for EV registrations and superb timing!!

Each month we publish an "EV report" to track how we are going against the targets set by the Government in May 2016. This is to double the number of electric vehicles in New Zealand every year to reach approximately 64,000 by 2021. The comparative numbers in this report may vary a little from previous reports as the Ministry of Transport is working hard on ensuring accurate reporting including correct analysis of plug in hybrids and battery variants.

August saw another record number of EV registrations (excluding Paxsters), and what great timing! -  as judging by the huge interest already shown in EV World and International Drive Electric week, September is looking good too :)

May saw a record number of EV registrations (excluding Paxsters), and judging by the nearly 3,000 rides and drives given during the road trip, there are a few more in the pipeline for June as well!

EV REPORT APRIL 2017 - EXPONENTIAL GROWTH continues

Each month we are publishing an "EV report" to track how we are going against the targets set by the Government in May 2016. This is to double the number of electric vehicles in New Zealand every year to reach approximately 64,000 by 2021.

April saw continued growth and we are eagerly looking forward to the next few months, as from what we have been hearing on the current road trip, there are many more registrations on the way!
