And so we’re pretty damn excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Victorian Electric Vehicle Trial that gives Victorians the chance to play a key role in laying the foundations for making Victoria an electric vehicle-friendly place.
The Victorian Electric Vehicle Trial will see how electric vehicles will operate in Victoria, so it won't just consider technology – it will consider people as well. That means they need ordinary Victorians to drive electric vehicles and report back on their experiences – we know, so thoughtful!
The T’s and C’s I hear you say (‘terms and conditions’, for the more formal among you)! They’re after 180 households to trial an electric car for three months in a real-world test. The trial will provide the vehicle charging point and pay for insurance; the household will pay the cost of electricity (it will be less than you would pay for petrol). Oh and you’ll need a valid Victorian driver licence of course. All in order to find out how, where, why and when you drive the vehicle, and what you think. Pretty good deal we think.
