First public charger in northern Tasmania goes live today!

Wed 25th Nov 2015.

Today at 1pm northern Tasmania’s first public EV charger will be launched at House of Anvers chocolate factory on the Bass Highway in Latrobe.

We here at Electric Highway believe that this is a shining role model for other tourist attractions throughout Tasmania. If most of the major tourist stops had charging points then it would be entirely possible to tour the whole state in an EV without any range worries, charging at each stop as you enjoy the activities.

Way to go Anvers!


Tasmanian Government to trial electric vehicles

Tasmania’s Minister for Growth, Matthew Groom, has said at the Greenhouse 2015 conference in Hobart that the State Government will shortly begin a trial of electric vehicles in the Government fleet.

At least 19 EVs will be added to the government fleet before the end of 2015.

This marks a sharp shift in the attitude of Tasmania’s government towards electric vehicles, and is a positive move towards a more widespread take up of EVs in the Island State.

EVs at the Sustainable Living Festival

The Tasmanian Sustainable Living Festival is almost here again!

Held at Hobart’s Princes Wharf 1 over the weekend of 31st October-1st November 2015, the festival is open from 10am to 4pm.

There will be many interesting things at the festival, but for the first time the Australian Electric Vehicle Association Tasmania will be there, with EV experts and owners available to answer your questions, as well as a display of electric vehicles that you can look at up close, maybe even jump in and see how it fits!

Come along, have a look, have a chat, and see why EV owners are so passionate about their ride!
