“What happens if my car runs out of electricity?”
It’s a question Anton Vikstrom, sustainability champion, electric vehicle expert and co-founder of the Good Car Company, has answered many times. He doesn’t hesitate.
“You pull over and call roadside assistance,” he says with a wry grin.
That’s before he explains that it’s quite hard to run out, because the car gives realtime updates on your remaining mileage, and you can use various apps to plan your route via Australia’s growing network of fast chargers. Plus in an emergency, unlike a petrol car, you can recharge at any standard powerpoint.
Anton will be back to answer more questions at our second webinar on Electric Vehicles on Wednesday November 11 at 6pm. He will also outline how he and his colleagues are aiming to kickstart the transition to electric transport by importing low mileage recent second hand electric vehicles from more mature markets such as Japan.
Electric cars aren’t going to fix climate change on their own but they are an important part of a zero emissions future, and they’re also really smart pieces of technology. There’s something very exciting about a car which is virtually silent, with no exhaust, which needs little maintenance and runs on sunshine. And if you join our community bulk-buy in collaboration with the Good Car Company, you could be driving one sooner than you think.
Our last Electric Vehicle Webinar was a sell-out, so we recommend you register as soon as possible, and please tell your friends and family to get on board too.
It’s going to be a fun journey.
