Thames EV Share Scheme Trial
Electric vehicles are one effective way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transport. Despite Government incentives now available in New Zealand, for many, the purchase price of a long-range EV is prohibitive.
In 2022, Hauraki Resilient Communities Trust purchased an EV (a BYD ATTO 3) with a range of approximately 400 km to trial a community car share scheme in Thames. The car-share scheme enables members to actively reduce their transport emissions, particularly for long-range travel.
A first of its kind for Thames, the trial began in September 2022 and is reviewed annually.
The trial has limited membership. To register your interest get in touch with John Leenman.
