Join UniSA’s Professor Peter Pudney as he discusses all things electric cars including:

  • a brief history of electric cars
  • why electric cars are important (if you must have a car)
  • the practicalities of living with one —performance, range, charging, running costs
  • Q&A to follow.
The City of Holdfast Bay’s Environmental Officer will then talk about subsides for electric charges, and the City of Holdfast Bay’s Carbon Neutral Plan. At the end of the session, council’s own EV vehicle will be on display.
