Orion launches free EV test-drives

9 May 2019 at 3:05 pm

Orion today launched a free offer for businesses to test-drive an electric vehicle for a week.

The offer, made in partnership with the Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce, offers Chamber members the chance to try out one of the latest electric vehicles, the new Hyundai Kona.

Paul Deavoll, Orion General Manager of Customer and Stakeholder said: “It’s a great opportunity to experience driving an electric vehicle, without any commitment.

“A week of driving will give people the opportunity to get to know the EV and see first-hand how economical to run and enjoyable to drive EVs are.

“Electric vehicles are the transport of the future, and we’re keen to give businesses the chance to see how well they can fit into a business’ fleet."

The Hyundai Kona goes for more than 400km real-world driving on a full charge, overcoming much of the range anxiety experienced with earlier EVs.
