North 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.

    EVs at EVolocity Waikato Regional Finals 2018

    SATURDAY 29 September, 9 AM - 3 PM

    It's 2018 and we're back baby! Join us at the Kartsport Racetrack near the Hamilton Airport for an electrifying day out!

    EVolocity and WECA are hosting the 2018 Waikato Regional Finals where 15 school teams will be battling it out on the tarmac with self-built all-electric race karts, vying for their spot at the national finals in Christchurch later this year. Come to support the ingenuity of these young Kiwis who are literally driving the future.

    Come and take a look at an array of EVs currently driving the roads of New Zealand. Real world EV owners will be on hand to tell you more about the vehicles and answer any questions you may have.

    EV Ride experience will be available so if you have never had the opportunity to ride in an EV then this is your chance - don't miss out!

    Special thanks to WECA, EVolocity, #LeadingTheCharge
