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 an event or talk to a local dealer.  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.

    Auckland - 2 Aug - EVWorld19Trade

    FRIDAY 2nd May 2019, 9AM - 5PM


    EV World will throw open its doors on the Friday to industry and trade. 

    If you work in the automotive or related fields, media, or you make fleet decisions, come along today, when the halls will be quieter and you can get a chance to speak one-on-one with the stand holders.

    Better NZ Trust will have a manned stand in the main exhibition hall near the main doors. Come and talk to us about us visiting your workplace, so your staff can experience driving an EV.

    Entrance is free on the Friday, but pre-registration is expected. For more information and to register your attendance go here https://www.conferenz.co.nz/events/evworld-nz-2019 Entrance into the Trade Expo does not gain you entrance into the Industry Conference being held elsewhere in the facility.
