Snug Electric Vehicle Fair

Aug. 20, 2022

Snug Park
Beach Road
Snug, Tasmania


Description

Are you a local Channel resident? Come and see, ride in or even test drive, a range of electric vehicles in Snug! We are providing a relaxed informal atmosphere to spend time with real everyday people who really know their electric vehicles and are willing to share their time and, in some case, even their car with you!

The total cost of ownership of this amazing new type of vehicle is coming down and the benefits in emission reductions is real. You may be surprised just how many different types of EVs are available in Australia these days - come and see for yourself. If you are getting more serious about purchasing, the Good Car Co will be there to offer you some interesting options to consider...

People looking at electric vehicles

We will provide:

  1. Presentations to further inform ourselves and our community about the current state of play regarding electric vehicles.
  2. Local residents with an opportunity to get up close and personal with an electric car including looking, discussing, riding in and even driving an electric car.

If you want to ride in or drive and electric car, registration will be essential. You can do that online or on the day.

Clive is an accomplished speaker and will provide a wonderful overview of how EVs will impact our transition to a climate positive world over the next 5-10 years?



  1. Given we want to reduce our emissions, what are the emissions from EVs over their life cycle versus internal combustion engines (ICE) cars, including embodied and usage emissions? (Note specifically the situation in Tasmania with its low emissions grid power.)

  2. How will EVs affect the energy infrastructure? Positively or negatively?

  3. What is the total economic cost of ownership comparisons with ICE cars? Discuss higher up-front costs versus lower running costs.

  4. New government’s policies fact sheet, Tasmanian government Stamp Duty


Clive is the National Vice-President of Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA). Now semi-retired but still active with Electric Highway Tasmania, helping to provide statewide coverage for the electric vehicle charging network.
