SUNDAY 31st March 2019, 4 - 5 PM
The #LeadingTheCharge Great EV Road Trip is once again travelling around the country. This time doing a giant loop of over 5,200 km. They will be stopping at 31 town centres and holding 41 (mostly public) educational events. Raumati Beach will be their 3rd stop as they travel between Taupo and Wellington.
They'll be spoilt for choice with all the new chargers that are being installed thanks to a joint effort between ChargeNet NZ and the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority. This particular charger will be brand spanking new and ready for an official opening. All will be welcome to attend, where not only will you be there for the ribbon cutting, but you'll also have a chance to look at four of the 17 vehicles that will be joining the road trip at various stages. There will be a Hyundai Kona, a modified Nissan Leaf, a BMW i3, and a Tesla Model S in attendance plus local vehicles.
In addition, special guest Chelsea Sexton will be watching on and ready to meet local EV owners.
So, if you're thinking about buying an EV, have a load of questions about their viability, or just curious about them, come to the charger opening between 4 and 5pm, where you'll be able to talk to experienced EV owners and experts.
