In New Zealand, an electric vehicle emits 80% less CO2 than an equivalent petrol vehicle because more than 80% of New Zealand's electricity is generated from renewable sources (hydro, wind and geothermal). This means the environment benefits of driving EVs are greater here than in most other countries.
Even when you take into account raw material extraction, battery manufacturing, vehicle manufacturing and shipping, battery vehicles still offer significant advantages over ICE (internal combustion engine) cars. Over their full life cycle, EVs emit 60% fewer climate change emissions than petrol vehicles.
Additionally, the running cost of a battery-only EV is considerably less than a petrol, diesel or hybrid car. The cost of charging an EV is equivalent to paying 30c per litre for petrol. What's more, EV maintenance costs are low because electric motors have few moving parts.
If you need any more reasons to switch from ICE to EV, just take an electric vehicle for a spin. They are a pleasure to drive - smooth, quiet and fast.

Chargemaster gave great advice on the product I would need and after-sale customer support was excellent. They arranged for installation of the unit and had no problem providing me with a longer cable after I decided I needed it. A minor fault with the unit was sorted out quickly and without any hassle or extra cost, and they were happy to talk me through using the app even after hours. I would recommend Chargemaster for anyone looking to install a home EV charging unit. The Wallbox does just what I need. Thanks!
Thanks Chargemaster for your superb and quick service to provide portable chargers.
The turnaround time and advice was excellent. I recommend Chargemaster to anyone in need of advice and supply of EV charging.
I ordered a wrong cable. It was 100% my mistake but I emailed the Chargemaster to replace it to a correct cable [ type 2 to type 1 ] if possible. Surprisingly a quick reply email was sent by Chargemaster and the prompt action was taken place. No extra cost to replace it. I am really happy with the customer services. Highly recommended!
