Petrol at 2-30 a litre, expected to go higher. This is when the Govt needs to fund EV advertising. Not to sell 20,000 cars next week, but to plant the seed, so people keep up with the play. Bring demand forward. I know new cars are expensive and not many models, but if a growing sentiment is created, that could open doors to Govt assisted import ideas.
The rest of the world found that car makers won't do what you don't *require* them to do.
I don't know why NZ would be an exception to that.
Our government needs to require a rising proportion of cars sold here to be electric. The car makers simply won't lift a finger otherwise.
We've seen over and over and over that auto makers simply don't supply EVs unless you make them. Anywhere.
