Running an electric car in New Zealand is very appealing. To have the convenience of a car but without many of the negatives – the greenhouse gas emissions (>70% renewables here), the rising fuel bills. However, buying an electric car is currently very expensive and requires manufacturing a new vehicle with its associated environmental footprint. So – is converting your existing petrol or diesel car to electric the answer? This programme should get you closer to making that decision.
In this programme I chatted with Hagen Bruggemann who has converted a car to electric and is now converting his second electric car (completed toward the end of 2014).
