Electric wheels rule at the latest Mosman market…

Last Saturday we had electric cars, an electric motorbike, electric bicycles and electric scooters on display. Some were available to test drive as well (scooters and motorbikes for those with a licence).

Come and visit our next market on May 1 to see the latest in smart and fun ways to reduce your emissions.

You can also meet our friendly volunteers then make a pledge to reduce your emissions. We’ll do our best to answer all your questions about rooftop solar and reducing emissions together.

If you want to explore electric wheels before May 1 why not:

“What happens if my electric car runs out of electricity?”

It’s a question Anton Vikstrom, sustainability champion, electric vehicle expert and co-founder of the Good Car Company, has answered many times. He doesn’t hesitate.

“You pull over and call roadside assistance,” he says with a wry grin.

That’s before he explains that it’s quite hard to run out. The car gives realtime updates on your remaining mileage, and you can use various apps to plan your route. Australia has a growing network of fast chargers. Plus in an emergency, unlike a petrol car, you can recharge at any standard powerpoint.

Anton will be back to answer more questions at our second webinar on Electric Vehicles on Wednesday November 11 at 6pm. He will also explain how the Good Car Co imports low mileage recent second hand electric vehicles from Japan.

Electric cars aren’t going to fix climate change on their own but they are an important part of a zero emissions future. They’re also really smart pieces of technology. There’s something very exciting about a car which is virtually silent, needs little maintenance and runs on sunshine. If you join our community bulk-buy you could be driving one sooner than you think.

Our last Electric Vehicle Webinar was a sell-out, so we recommend you register as soon as possible, and please tell your friends and family to get on board too: https://events.humanitix.com/accelerate-wed-11-nov

Please contact Ursula Hogben with any questions: electric@zeroemissionssolutions.org

It’s going to be a fun journey.
