Interested in electric vehicles? Watch out for Leading The Charge


Leading The Charge ­– New Zealand’s EV roadshow – is well underway.

After starting at the very bottom of the South Island, the convoy of EVs will be stopping off at various locations to hold public events for anyone who’s interested in these vehicles. Several owners, experts and enthusiastic will be available at each event where you can ask questions to find out more about EVs.

The road trip will eventually finish on 10th May at the very top of the North Island in Cape Reinga.

After starting in the South Island last week, over the next fortnight Leading The Charge is set to visit various centres in the North Island, so make sure you pop along to your nearest event.

You can also find more information on the Leading The Charge website.
