Proudly supported by the City of Darebin's Community Grants Program and and the Councils of Merri-bek and Yarra.
The Darebin/Northern Melbourne Community EV Bulk Buy has launched!
The Good Car Company is proud to partner with Darebin Climate Action Now to deliver our Darebin/Northern Melbourne EV Bulk Buy.
As residents of the Northern suburbs of Melbourne you can play a part in the movement to decarbonise transport, by taking public transport, active transport and choosing an EV. Our EV Bulk Buy will help you do that, more affordably.
The EV Bulk Buy is a fantastic program of information, test drives and events designed so you can:
- learn about EVs,
- get all your questions answered by local EV owners and the Good Car Co team
- talk in detail about things like batteries, charging, range and more, and
- purchase an EV at bulk buy prices and receive other EV Bulk Buy benefits.
Don't forget, this is a no-obligation program, so even if you register and don't buy an EV, you will learn a lot and will be better prepared for when you are ready to make the transition.
EV Test Drives Now Open
A schedule of test drives in the Good Car Co. Nissan Leafs is now available!
The popular and affordable local city run about, the 30kWh AZEO, is a perfect EV to start your transport decarbonisaiotn. It has a range of 122-150 km (highway/town), so can meet your local daily driving needs easily.

About the Darebin/Northern Melbourne Electric Vehicle Bulk-Buy
The Good Car Company’s goal is to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in Australia and in doing so, save thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions.
We do this by partnering with communities like this one, importing used and new EVs from Japan and UK and facilitating bulk buys to make EVs more affordable.
Through our community bulk-buys, we have demonstrated the appetite for affordable electric vehicles in Australia. We help to advocate for investment in charging stations and apply pressure to conventional car dealers to lower their prices and expand their range of electric vehicles in Australia.
Throughout the Darebin/Northern Melbourne EV Bulk Buy we'll provide you with lots of opportunities to learn about EVs and even purchase one more affordably.
Whether you go for our awesome quality second hand Nissan Leafs from Japan, or one of our new EV models you can save significantly compared to the price of a new vehicle.
“Affordable” + “Electric Car” are words we have not been able to put together before. We are proud to be able to deliver a range of affordable electric vehicles to kickstart the decarbonisation of transport in northern Melbourne, including:
- Nissan Leaf AZEO 30kWh
- Nissan Leaf ZE1 40 kWh
- Nissan Leaf ZE1 e+ 62 kWh
- Nissan E-NV200 van 2 seater and 7 seater 40kWh
- Peugeot E-Expert van 50 kWh and 75 kWh
