Electric vehicle charging – what you need to know

New Zealand is a great fit for electric vehicles.

Our significant renewable electricity resources, the average distance driven per day is low (33km), and most people (85%) have ready access to a power source to charge their car. And the case for an Electric Vehicle is a good one, with renewable electricity at the equivalent of 30 cents a litre1, switching to an electric vehicle is a great way to reduce emissions.

EV Link is PDL by Schneider Electric’s solution to quickly and safely charge an electric vehicle. The EVlink Wallbox is weatherproof and robust. It can therefore be used in tough environments: in homes and on private properties.
