Christchurch holds the record with 100, but Otago event organiser Pam McKinlay is hoping to attract the owners of more than 200 Otago EVs to the record attempt at the harbourside car park at Forsyth Barr Stadium on September 10, Mrs McKinlay said.
Otago was second in New Zealand behind Auckland in having the highest number of EVs registered per 1000 people, with more than 240EVs in the region.
The event is part of Dunedin’s Great Big EV Day Out gala, coinciding with National Drive Electric Week. There would be information booths to talk attendees through range and connectivity questions and electric vehicles would be available to test drive.
As at December 31 last year of the 4.8 million vehicles registered in New Zealand 2503 were pure EVs and 16,520 were hybrids.
