Australia launches EV trial

8 October 2010

The Australian state of Victoria has today launched an EV trial similar to the TSB demonstrator of which EEMS Accelerate is a part here in the UK. The trial will involve 50 organisations, 180 households, but only around 60 vehicles.

The cars will be supplied by a variety of mainstream and smaller manufacturers, and a variety of charging options will be tested including the Better Place battery swap system. All of the power used for charging will be from renewable sources.
