“As someone who lives in a remote area, I was sceptical about the practicality of electric vehicles. However, after taking the EV for a trial drive, I was pleasantly surprised. They could become a game-changer for our environmentally conscious community.” - EV trial participant

As part of a joint initiative between WALGA, Horizon PowerEnergy Policy WA and MoJo Car Share, an electric vehicle (EV) recently completed a return trip from Perth across the State’s Mid-West and Pilbara region, visiting nine WA Local Governments.

90% of drivers who participated in the tour had never experienced an EV, with the initiative providing an opportunity to gain knowledge of charging, travel distance, and the suitability of electric vehicles for operational purposes.
