Electric Vehicles – the future is here
Cleaner, simpler and more affordable than ever
New incentives mean buying an EV is more affordable, with a rebate of up to $8,625* and an exemption from road user charges.
They’re cheaper in the long run as well. Depending on your electricity supplier and when you charge your EV, you could pay the equivalent of between 24 and 40 cents a litre for fuel. Plus, maintenance costs are low.
Thanks to New Zealand’s renewable energy capabilities, switching to an EV from a petrol or diesel car cuts your CO2 emissions by up to 80%.
With new incentives, more models becoming available and increasingly accessible charging infrastructure, the transition to EVs is well underway.
Drive Electric has been advocating for change since 2011– and we’re not stopping anytime soon.
