Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. That there are three times as many electric vehicles in New Zealand than two years ago is great news.
Latest figures show there are 15,453 registered electric vehicles (EVs) zipping quietly along our roads right now.
Against a national fleet getting uncomfortably close to 4 million vehicles, it’s not even half a per cent. But it’s tracking in the right direction.
Across virtually all measures, EVs are better for everyone and everything than the current petrol and diesel alternatives.
