With excellent build quality and styling, the VW e-Golf well and truly delivers the durability required by a fleet vehicle at a more reasonable price than alternatives. With real world range about 240kms on a single charge & excellent regeneration capabilities (recharge from braking), the e-Golf has exceeded our expectations. Its also a pleasure to drive. John Clement, our Field Connectivity Specialist, who spends his days out and about installing equipment has been blown away by the e-Golf. He admits to having a experienced a little “range anxiety” to start with, but soon fell in love with the clean, quiet ride of the e-Golf.

Audi A3 e-tron
Plug-in Hybrids (PHEV’s) are a less well understood option when looking at improving fleet choices, but can also work very well in improving efficiency and markedly reduce emissions. The Audi A3 e-tron offers around 40km full electric driving on one charge. With an afternoon top up, Bill can easily drive around 80km in fully electric mode per day. With good charging management, this easily meets daily round town driving requirements. If an out of town trip is needed, the super efficient petrol engine is at hand. Bill Bird, our Technical Manager loves his new e-tron which delivers superior quality, handling and the unequalled reliability of Audi.

Evnex 22kw Charge Point
Charge Points proved to be another learning curve. We initially installed an 11KW charger manufactured overseas which was recommended by an installer. After further research before installing another charger, we found Evnex who design and manufacture their units right here in Christchurch. With their excellent CP Link software, we can manage and track exactly what it costs to charge the vehicles. With these chargers installed at work both cars can be fully charged in a few hours or just get plugged in for a top up any time while the cars are parked at the office. So range is no concern with either vehicle.
