Booklet answers common electric vehicle questions

Car buyers who like to do their research are the target of a new booklet about buying an electric vehicle (EV).

Buyer's guide to electric vehicles

The Buyer's Guide to Electric Vehicles includes tips on how to choose the right EV for your needs, assess battery health, maximise range and charge easily and safely. An FAQ section covers common questions such as whether EVs can cope with hills (they can) or tow a trailer (check the manual).

The booklet was produced by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) as part of the Government's information campaign to accelerate the uptake of EVs in New Zealand.

Copies will be handed out at EECA-supported events throughout the country, from large expos to local events where people have the chance to drive or have a ride in an EV.

“People are always curious to find out more,” says EECA Chief Executive Andrew Caseley. “This booklet meets a demand for factual information they can take away and digest at their leisure.

“Buying a car is a big decision – many people want to do their research and understand this new technology before they start looking at makes and models.”

Find the booklet in the EV section of EECA’s Energywise website or download via the link below.

EV enthusiasts hold community events throughout the country with EECA’s support.
