Compared to the NRMA of last century the new organisation is much more interested in sustainability and clean transport, committing substantial funds towards a large national EV charging network, running Electric Vehicle Drive Days across NSW, preparing roadside assist to help stranded EV’s and more.
As part of that the NRMA has just launched a new section on their website to help educate mainstream Australian drivers about purchasing an EV and show them the benefits of making the switch from petrol/diesel to an EV.
NRMA Chief Executive of Energy Carly Irving-Dolan said the new NRMA EV hub brings together all Electric Vehicle content to one platform for those drivers considering an EV purchase.
With 99 chargers located across regional NSW and at regional borders, the NRMA’s national charging network is expanding across Australia through partnerships with both Federal and State Governments which will see more chargers brought online this year.
Ms Irving-Dolan said the NRMA has a long history connecting communities across regional Australia as the nature of motoring in Australia evolves:
“The NRMA has been at the forefront of charging Australia’s electric vehicle future, and we’re making sure Australians can easily access reliable information and the tools they need if they are considering an EV purchase”.
“Interest in EVs is growing, not only with people considering an EV as their next purchase, but with members of the community who are interested in the technology and what it will mean for their community”.
““The NRMA is working to ensure that no regional community is left behind in the transition to electric vehicles”.
