Go Wild, Go Electric!

Electric cars are not just for cities, they can go to wild places too.

View a snapshot of the 2017 Cradle Mountain Charge - where 25 electric vehicles drove in convoy from Devonport, via Sheffield to Cradle Mountain.

This was an 80km drive on rural roads by an assortment of EVs included commercial models (both full electric and hybrids), some home conversion models, a van and an e-bike.

So, if you're wondering where your next holiday could be, remember its possible to visit the wild places of Tasmania in quiet enjoyment (literally) in an electric vehicle.

Online Q&A with members

AEVA at Agfest 2018While we'd normally be in a tent at Agfest answering people's queries about all things EV, this year AEVA members will be online to answer your questions about electric vehicles 'in the cloud'.

Topics we'll be covering include makes and models that are available in Australia; charging and batteries; converting an internal combustion engine to EV; bicycles and more ....

Learn from members' real life experiences of driving an EV.
