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.

SATURDAY 30th June, 11AM - 2PM
Ever thought about owning an electric vehicle but don't know where to start, the information all seems so overwhelming and how do you know what kind of car to buy for your needs?
The Goodness Grocer team faced the same sense of overwhelm too, all they knew was that they were spending over $100 per week on petrol and that they felt pretty bad every time they went to the gas station.
Now, they are the proud owners of a Nissan Leaf, they love not going to the petrol station anymore, and cannot believe the savings!
So go along to their Pukekohe store on Sat 30th June between 11am and 2pm to have a chat with Muz and Fiona from PlugNDrive. They know all about EV's and can take you out for a test drive on the day too.
