A Year in Electric Vehicles with Prof Robert McLachlan

  • Calendar Icon Thursday, 19 September 2019, 6:30pm – 7:30pm
  • Location Icon Central Library Event Central


A year is a long time in electric vehicles, with e-bikes, e-scooters, and the Tesla Model 3 taking the world by storm (even by surprise!). In New Zealand, a Clean Car Standard & Discount are up for discussion, and in Palmerston North we have the marvelous new He Ara Kotahi and all-electric rubbish trucks patrol the streets silently. What will 2020 bring?

Robert McLachlan is Distinguished Professor in the School of Fundamental Sciences, Massey University, and co-founder of the Centre for Planetary Ecology. He writes on environmental issues at blog.planetaryecology.org.

Information on buying and owning an EV will be available, and local EV Owners will be there to answer questions. EV rides will be available before & after the event.
