Ever since Sanjeev Gupta tried to build electric cars in South Australia but didn't, it seemed like the vehicle manufacturing industry was totally extinct in Australia. Slowly, quietly and successfully a number of companies have started manufacturing electric vehicles including buses, trucks, vans, motorbikes, utes and more.

 

CEO Luke Todd discusses the work his company Truegreen Mobility is doing building electric buses, trucks and the opportunities there are for manufacturing in Australia. 

In the electric vehicle space a tsunami is coming and the federal government can't see it!

 

Then Bryce Gaton EV Choice founder, talks about electric cars in Australia, what cars are available now and on the horizon including the electric ute options our Prime minister Scott Morrison said would never be viable. And how simple and cheap it is to sevice and maintain electric cars.

Electric utes, no problems! Electric car towing, no problems! Range anxiety, no problems!
