Enormous NZ electric-vehicle roadshow Leading The Charge is under way
Leading The Charge, the epic New Zealand road trip of electric vehicles (EVs) that covers the entire country, has kicked off from the bottom of the South Island.
The road trip started in Bluff and winds its way up the country to eventually finish at Cape Reinga.
The convoy will be stopping off along the way to hold public events for anyone interested in EVs to pop along for a look and ask any questions of the various experts, enthusiasts and owners.
