Show off your electric car as we drive in procession around iconic Wellington locations. We'll make a video to show New Zealanders that electric cars and chargers are here and now; not in Europe or 2025!

Day One - City Shoot - Sunday 11th Sept.
Meet 750am Bute Street outside Charge.Net at Z Vivian St, and we will go to various locations including Cuba St, Oriental Bay, Beehive, Mt Vic, Zealandia, and potentially Brooklyn Turbine. Should be achievable for a full Leaf without recharging. A professional film crew will run the day.

Day One - Makara Shoot - Monday 12th Sept
Rare treat to visit the private sections of Meridian's West Wind turbines in Makara. Exact location will be posted here, but will be entrance of wind farm; give yourself enough time to get there on time (you'll want to have driven through Karori at 930). Will be achievable for a reasonably full Leaf without recharging. A professional film crew will run the day.

If weather for either day is dodgy an update will be posted here. Email for details.

A 1-2 minute video of the trip will be created, showing electric vehicles driving around key CBD locations, charging up, and finishing up surrounded by renewable electricity generation! :)
