Greg became fascinated by electric vehicles at the age of ten when he read an article on the GM Impact concept car. This fascination grew stronger with time, and eventually he bought one of the first production EVs to come to Australia, a 2010 Mitsubishi i MiEV.

Rachel has long been passionate about sustainable transport, and after driving Greg’s i MiEV  she went out and got her own! This was the updated 2012 model, and together the family have travelled over 50,000 kilometres on electric power. This gives us a good insight into what it is like living with an EV every day, and as we live in a rural area at the edge of what most would consider a practical distance for electric commuting, we have pushed the boundaries a bit and proven that for the vast majority of people an EV means very little adjustment at all.
