The Guardian is reporting that electrical sales are up in Australia, while sales of dinosaur cars have fallen by 8%.
That’s great news in a country suffering heavily from the effects of climate change, including an unprecedented number of bushfires. While the overall number of EVs on the road in Australia is still small, it hopefully marks the start of a trend.
Meanwhile, in Canada, an ambitious pair of drivers has completed a cross country drive in an electric vehicle in 73 hours, 27 minutes, 48 seconds. The drive, which took them from British Columbia to Halifax was more than 6133 Kms or 3810 miles… and it was completed in the winter.
Their feat puts paid to a number of objections to electric vehicles, as it’s clear there’s substantial charging infrastructure in place, and that cold weather is not a deterrent to electric vehicle driving.
