Why 100% electric?
Electric cars reduce our emissions and they’re cheaper to run. We exclusively sell and support electric vehicles because we want to do whatever we can to decarbonise our lives. That’s our motive. If you’re a bean-counter, electric cars were made for you - they are far cheaper to run and service and our prices remove the entry cost that has been a barrier until now.
We want to have a good answer when our kids come to us with pleading eyes and ask “What did you do?”. The climate experts (IPCC) say that we need to reduce carbon emissions by 45% within the next 11 years to avoid the worst effects of climate change. 17% of Australia’s emissions come from transport so that gets us one third of the way to our target. If you want to do whatever you can to reduce your climate change impact, if you want quieter cities, cleaner air and cheaper running costs: please get in touch. We can deliver anywhere in Australia.
Lower total cost of ownership
The running costs are way lower than an equivalent petrol or diesel vehicle, as you can see on greenvehicleguide.gov.au. Maintenance costs are about a third of internal combustion engines (ICE) . An average Australian driver can save over $1,500 per year on fuel costs.
Better for the environment
Electric vehicles don’t produce any tailpipe emissions. They are cleaner even when considering the emissions from generating electricity to charge. In cases where electricity is generated with renewable, hydro, wind or solar, electric vehicles are truly emission and pollution free. This is good news for our health! Better air quality will lead to less health problems and costs caused by air pollution. EVs are also quieter than petrol/diesel vehicles, which means less noise pollution.
Electric vehicles can help with Australia’s energy security. As a nation, we are highly dependent on other countries for petroleum imports. EV’s are easy to power from local and renewable energy sources, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. There are also better employment benefits for Australians through the use of locally produced electricity.
