Charging around Wellington
The Wellington Company have introduced battery-powered iMiEV electric cars to the Wellington market with a range of up to 155km and zero drive-time emissions, purchasing three, alongside NZ Post, Meridian and WCC who each bought one.
This is a fantastic opportunity to reduce vehicle emissions in the capital city, as 45% of journeys to work in Wellington are by car, truck, or van. Ian Cassels, of The Wellington Company, has said that “the electric car was perfect for showcasing Wellington and its compactness”.
“Diesel fumes and noisy motors have no place on our Golden Mile – we’re confident that the horseless carriage will now be elegant and quiet. Wellingtonian’s love walking and they will certainly appreciate the proliferation of these amiable and clever little critters”.
