Enormous NZ electric-vehicle roadshow Leading The Charge is under way

A disparate bunch of vehicles, united in the Leading the Charge EV-cause.

 

Leading The Charge, the epic New Zealand road trip of electric vehicles (EVs) that covers the entire country, has kicked off from the bottom of the South Island.

The road trip started in Bluff and winds its way up the country to eventually finish at Cape Reinga.

​The convoy will be stopping off along the way to hold public events for anyone interested in EVs to pop along for a look and ask any questions of the various experts, enthusiasts and owners.

Meet these people at a location near you: EV event travelling from Bluff to Cape Reinga until May 10.

After the start in Bluff, the first stop is Invercargill. See below for a full list of places to see the vehicles.
