I agree. Having a supply of cheaper used EVs would somewhat compensate for the high prices for new ones caused by lack of incentives, as well as the general lack of choice. As well as the Leaf and I-miev variants, it would be a good way to bring the VW E cars into Australia in RHD - the Golf GTE is ...
I'm guessing they have put them out on the website to see just how much interest there is before they commit to anything. The Zoe could be a good fit for the local market. Chameleon charger makes the best of whatever juice you can get, and the range is pretty good - ~160km in real world conditions i...
BMW are already use Combo 2 CCS in European spec cars, so it shouldn't be a problem. It's unfortunate that Aus and NZ may well wind up with different types though.
Yep, there are a lot of rumors about it. Their last car (the Reva I / G-wiz) sold quite well in UK and Norway, so I hope they do do a European e2o. Rumors were that the Euro version would also get some improvements to speed and range (and maybe rapid charge) and sell for around 10k UK pounds.

Nissan really should introduce it in the Aussie market as soon as practical (maybe discount the old stock to help clear it?), as the extra range really makes the car far more viable in the spread out nature of the suburbs with little public charging infrastructure. Maybe even, when Nissan finally do...

I was just thinking about this, and actually having charge points on an electric highway share an existing servo makes sence. Firstly, its practical, as you will be waiting around 30mins to charge, and on a long journey, chances are you will want to buy a coffee, use the loo etc. etc. - so chances a...
Fair point about petrol pumps, and it *is* new tech, though not particularly complex. What I think would be a good move (and one I think we'll see in time) is fast-charge points being more like servos, with multiple "pumps". If one goes down (or is just busy / ICEd, or whatever else may crop up), th...
I wonder what it is that makes fast-charge points generally so unreliable? Compared to a petrol pump there are far fewer moving parts, so in theory they should be very simple and reliable. Is it substandard manufacturing, ,inadequate grid support, or something else...?
Heya, Just to introduce myself to the forum. Jasmin is a pom who divides my time between two hemispheres and hopes one day to be able to easily drive an EV down-under :) Have an interest in small, affordable easy-to-drive cars and also how to use incentives and infrastructure to drive the electrific...

The manufacturer had a fair bit of luck with their first car (the Reva-i /G-wiz) in Europe, so apparently designed the e2o with an eye to western exports to Norway and the EU. As such crush zones and other structural features that you can't easily add later have been designed in from the outset (the...
