Canberra prominent in World EV Day celebration
It was the first ever World EV Day on 9 September, and Canberra joined the celebration.
A range of electric vehicles was on display in the centre strip of Northbourne Ave, between the tram stop and London Circuit. They included a modified Tesla Model S, a Hyundai Kona towing a camper trailer, a BMWi3, a Tesla Model 3, electric motorbikes, a Nissan electric van, a Porsche 986, e-bikes and scooters, and an ACT Government branded Nissan Leaf.
AEVA is committed to the mission of promoting electric vehicles of all kinds and believe the best way to find out about the benefits an EV is to own one. The second best way is to talk to an owner. World EV Day is one of an ongoing series of events that will offer EV experiences to Canberra residents.
AEVA ACT is proud to actively support the ACT Government target of net zero emissions by 2045 and sees the electrification of all modes of transport as a vital part of the process. With ACT achieving 100% renewable electricity cutting emissions the ongoing electrification of transport is the next logical step.
