Last year we posted our list of all of the EVs (Electric Cars) available for sale in New Zealand at the beginning of 2021. You can view this 2021 EV list here. This is our updated list of 2022 EVs being sold in NZ. It also includes YouTube video reviews of each Electric Car model. 

2021 was a big year in Electric Cars and EV sales in New Zealand, helped by the introduction of the NZ Governments Clean Car Discount scheme. This has brought down the cost of purchasing a new Electric Vehicle. More and more manufacturers are introducing EVs as they shift away from fossil fuels. The costs should continue to drop as EVs on NZ become the default vehicle of choice. 

2022-EVs-NZ-electric-carsWe are passionate about electric vehicles, and the many advantages they offer over cars that use internal combustible engines. EVs are the future for the Car and Vehicle fleet in NZ.

The current makes and models of electric cars NZ currently for sale in the New Zealand market at the time of publishing this article include the following brands and models. Our 2022 Electric Cars NZ list only contains pure electric vehicles. So it doesn't contain  hybrids, or plugin hybrids, which both have combustion engines in them. The YouTube video reviews of each Electric Car model are of overseas models, so they may differ from the specifications of the New Zealand models.
