EVworld highlights: It’s back and bigger than ever

Last year I was lucky enough to attend NZ’s first ever EV showcase. Since then the EVs have only become more popular in NZ. 

I was invited back this year and the growth in the EV community is made evident simply by the scale of the event this year. 

I’d wager to say that there are at least twice as many booths as last year, and according to an EVworld spokesperson they expect it to keep growing in popularity and size each year. 

Some stand-out booths were BMW, Mercury and in a surprise twist NZ Post. 

Other than all of the sci-fi technology on display there are also opportunities for hands-on experiences at the conference.

The public day for EVworld is Saturday the 11th, so if you are a fan of cars or technology I’d recommend swinging by the showcase. 

You can see some of my favourite booths below.
