We interviewed various experts about the future of the industry and we have compiled and compressed valuable tips in this buyers’ guide for you.

Australia has a wide range of unique cars; surprisingly not even one of the 5 most popular cars is electric. Just like the Nissan’s slogan, electric cars are indeed an ‘innovation that excites’. This innovation is the future, and here to stay. The electric cars are indeed new and come in similar designs as the standard cars but with more powerful features (new torque, new vroom, new dashboard, new sound, and new maintenance schedules) than their petrol counterparts. Comfortable, smooth and perfect for the Australian weather, EVs are definitely an attractive alternative for motorists, no wonder they are fast becoming a trend around town.
