South Island Events

Electric vehicles (EVs) aren’t the stuff of science fiction, they are very real and they are here to stay! 

If you haven’t seen an electric vehicle for yourself, come along to a Leading The Charge event.  At these events, you will be able to talk to some of the owners or read information about the current EV situation in New Zealand and what steps are being taken to increase uptake.
