Event Report

Morning Tea with and EV is an effective way to engage with prospective EV buyers.  After the market, we invited interested parties to join us at the Totara Café for morning Tea and chat about EVs.  This is a comfortable atmosphere where curious buyers can ask questions and test drive. The Totara Café also provides Type 2 chargers, so it is easily demonstrated how easy it is to charge.

Following the Growers Market on 22 Sept we will move across the street to the Northland Regional Council's - Council Chambers for and EV Workshop and Panel Discussion.  The workshop will be a fluid discussion and presentation of EVs and the advantages for New Zealand.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions of the Panel followed by test drives and a chance to ask questions of EV owners about our experience driving EVs.
