Australians will have the opportunity to check out more than 100 Electric Vehicle (EV) models in one location this weekend and test drive 25 of them, in what will be the largest and most diverse EV test drive experience ever seen in the Southern Hemisphere. Presented by the Fully Charged YouTube Channel, Everything Electric is the world’s number one home energy and electric vehicle show, and will have EVS from 12 of the biggest selling EV brands available to test drive including Polestar, Audi, BMW, Hyundai, Genesis, Renault, MG, BYD, Kia, Tesla and many more.
Everything Electric will return to Sydney over three days (February 9th-11th) at Sydney Showground and follows a year that saw Australians buy EVs in record numbers. Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event, described as a ‘fun-filled, knowledge-packed weekend of electrification’ that allows visitors to explore the future of transport and the latest in clean energy technologies for the home.
“There are more than 18.3 Million cars on the road in Australia, and while we’re seeing an huge increase in curiosity around EVs, the biggest barriers to Australians making the switch are psychological, not technological, said Dan Caesar, CEO at Everything Electric and the Fully Charged Show.
“Traditional dealerships are poorly positioned to educate on electric cars, and it can take multiple trips to showrooms to compare and contrast different brands, so to have 25 different EV models available to test drive in one place is an incredible opportunity that should be taken advantage of by any Australian thinking about transitioning over to an EV, either now, or in the future,” he said.
Alongside the enormous EV test drive experience, Everything Electric ticket holders over the age of 16 can also “test drive” e-scooters, e-bikes and e-skateboards at the Micro Mobility Test Track. Other cars on display will include the Australian unveiling of the Renault Megan E-Tech and the first public showing of the new Audi Q4 e-tron. Other EVs on display will include the Ford F-150 Lightning Electric “Ute”, Polestar’s first SUV, the Polestar 3, the Lotus Eletre, plus dozens more.
More than 50 expert live sessions will also run over the three days across two theatres, discussing topics including; EV mythbusting, what to look for in your first EV purchase, future proofing your home, low carbon food impact and how to reduce your energy bills and carbon emissions.
Meanwhile, a Zero Carbon Kitchen will operate throughout offering twice-daily cooking demonstrations from world-renowned vegan cooks, Henry Firth and Ian Theasby, from the world’s largest plant-based online channel, BOSH!
Finally, Everything Electric punters can also check out all the latest in green home energy technology and book dedicated 1-on-1 appointments with independent home energy experts to help them cut down on carbon and reap massive savings on their energy bills.
