Phrase of the Day: electric car penetration

More than 3000 are now registered in New Zealand.

The government hopes to double its fleet of electric vehicles annually, and achieved this last year with 1513 registrations.

This was well ahead of Australia’s figure of 220 EV registered there last year.

However statistics show electric car penetration was still just scratching the surface.

NZTA figures state there were almost 3.2 million passenger cars and vans registered in total, as of last December.

It’s a bit of a farce when the majority of registrations are due to central and local government who are too busy virtue signalling to look at the cost effectiveness versus a standard model.

And then they shamelessly quote the  numbers to show the enthusiasm for the concept by the general population.

I tell you what.  Once all crown cars are running on electricity, I’ll look into it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
