May EV Meetup
Auckland kicked off what we hope will be many meetups for any EV interested humans this month.
Our thanks to Auckland City Electric Vehicles for hosting this month and putting on the fancy supper.
Hadley gave us a rundown on the current state of the market and the supply of vehicles. There have been a couple of bursts in demand fuelled by the Clean Car rebate and the increase in the price of petrol. Not really surprising but everything that helps people to start thinking about EV's is great for the environment.
Prior to this event, every new vehicle I had inquired about seemed to have had a long waiting list. But although there was a row of sold cars in the warehouse, there remained just as many second-hand vehicles available.
We had an interesting selection of owner vehicles, including a Polestar 2 and an Ioniq 5. Plus a couple of Model 3 and Model S Teslas.
Mark Buckingham gave us a run down on his adventures travelling the country with a trailer full of tow bars which he fits to any EV as an after market add-on. If you want to find out more, send him a message on Facebook. Or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
