    NZ Electric Vehicle Take-up Needs More Drive

      Wed, August 15, 2018       

    (15 August 2018 - New Zealand) Industry lobby group Drive Electric has declared that the New Zealand government needs to be acting now if it is to put into action a sustained take-up of electric vehicles (EVs) as part of its emissions reduction strategy. To reach the current target of 64,000 EVs on the road by the end of 2021, New Zealand will need to add about 50,000 vehicles by 2021. According to official data sources from the Ministry of Transport, only 550 EVs were added to the New Zealand car fleet in July with 121 of them new. The total New Zealand EV fleet currently stands at 9,241 which has doubled in size year-on-year and positions the country roughly eight months ahead of the 2018 target. If New Zealand continues adding 550 EVs a month it will surpass 12,000 EVs by the end of 2018.
