EV leadership group announced

Transport Minister Simon Bridges today announced the members of the Electric Vehicles Leadership Group as part of the Government’s programme to accelerate the uptake of EVs in New Zealand.

In May the Government launched its Electric Vehicles Programme which aims to double the number of EVs on New Zealand roads each year to reach 64,000 by 2021.
