2019 Great EV Road Trip


The #LeadingTheCharge 2019 Great EV Road Trip is an annual event, now in its 5th season. A group of electric cars set out around the country stopping at a town near you to hold events. These events are listed below.

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.  At many of them, you'll be able to test drive, or ride in an electric car to feel the difference.
