Electric vehicles

If you're thinking about buying an electric vehicle (EV), or even you already own one, this information may help you understand the benefits and options, make the best purchase decision and select the optimal charging solution for you. You could be part of the transition to a cleaner, quieter driving future.

Motoring world is changing

In 2020 alone, more than 3.2 million new plug-in electric vehicles were registered globally. Therefore, the motoring future for Queensland and Australia is relatively clear.

They're cheaper to run

The running costs of EVs are much lower than for petrol cars. The electricity to charge an EV costs approximately 40% of the cost of petrol for a similar sized vehicle to drive the same distance (ref. https:///www.whichcar.com.au). Plus, the registration and maintenance cost are lower.

Eco friendly

Electric vehicles are simply better for the environment. EVs emit no tailpipe emmissions.

Renewable energy

Electricity from the grid will increasingly come from renewable energy sources like solar and wind. You may even be generating your own renewable energy!
