Yarra Ranges set to host Electric Vehicle Show & Shine

EV showcase launching in Healesville.

The first Electric Vehicle Show & Shine in Healesville is next Saturday 13 August, marking the launch of the Yarra Valley EV Community Bulk Buy.

The Bulk Buy includes 28 days of information, videos, online and in-person events and test drive opportunities, all designed to help consumers make an informed decision when choosing an EV.

It is a combined effort between the Good Car Co. and community energy groups Healesville CoRE, Bunyip Renewables Action Group (BRAG), Eastern Climate Action Melbourne (ECAM), Clean Energy Nillumbik (CEN) and Dandenong

Ranges Renewable Energy Association (DRREA).

At the Show & Shine, the team from Good Car Co. will:

● showcase a range of Nissan Leafs

● offer conversation with local EV owners and ambassadors

● run an EV presentation and Q&A session

● offer test rides

● provide a chance to sign up for a test drive, and

● explain the process of ordering an EV through the Bulk Buy offer.

The Good Car Co. imports second hand electric vehicles from Japan, making them available within Australia at affordable prices. Using clean, renewable energy, the vehicles significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.

Households and businesses with solar electricity can use their free power to charge car batteries during the day.

It is expected that one day, car batteries will be used as a battery bank for home energy, an initiative that is already commencing.

With car manufacturers rapidly transitioning to EV’s, this event offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the vehicles that are the future of the car industry.

It will focus on the facts of EV’s: the types of electric vehicles available, the effect they have on the environment, the cost of buying and maintaining them, distances between recharges, charging stations available now and much more. Attendees will also learn about the latest developments in the renewable energy transport field here and overseas.

When: 1.00pm – 4.00pm, Saturday 13th August 2022.
