Where will I charge it?

Electric Vehicles have a charger built in that converts the AC power from the grid into DC power for the car’s battery. The onboard charger is limited in power and it typically takes 6 hours to fully charge a car.

Some stations are equipped with fast DC chargers (CHAdeMO), which dramatically reduces the charge time, usually to less than 25 minutes.

Easy to charge

  • You have the freedom to charge at home, at work or on the go. Charging points can be found at many supermarkets and car parks. Some of them are FREE.
  • A searchable map of New Zealand's ever-growing network of public charging points can be found at electrolease.nz/map.
  • It's easiest to have an electric car charge-point fitted at your home, but all electric cars can be plugged in with a regular 3-pin socket.

Cheap to run

  • Electric cars are extremely cheap to run, costing on average $2.50 to drive 100 kms
  • Nissan Leaf drivers can charge for free at many EV charging stations around New Zealand!
  • Many stations have rapid charge ability, where a 20-minute charge can replenish the battery to 80%
  • Because the cars have fewer moving parts, electric cars require less maintenance. No more oil to change.

Better for the environment

  • The study found that the battery electric vehicle is the most feasible, efficient, and sustainable successor to the traditional internal combustion engine vehicle.

Low emissions vehicle contestable fund

In August 2016, the Government’s announced a low emissions vehicle contestable fund. This is available to projects that can showcase the potential of EVs to the rest of New Zealand. Part of the government’s electric vehicles programme, the fund is aimed at promoting EVs and making the most of New Zealand’s renewable electricity advantage.
