David has owned three EVs and will describe his experiences which began with a second hand Nissan LEAF. He’s done a few long trips including Darwin to Adelaide to Sydney to Cradle Mountain and will explain why range anxiety has never been a concern. He will tell his story and of his experiences as an EV owner. He purchased a Nissan LEAF in 2015 as a spare car and shopping runabout. He didn’t think for a minute that it would became the only car he and his wife would use for the next 4 years. They actually never used their late model petrol cars again. His story has convinced others to go all electric and he loves busting myths and tackling common questions. He will touch on the subjects of selecting a car to match your lifestyle, ownership, servicing (or lack of it), long distance travel and why you probably don’t need a fast charger at home.

Bryce will give an overview of useful terminology and EV technology and will then cover what’s currently available in the EV market, those planned in the near future and will compare their features.


David Cann is a member of the Adelaide Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) and a founder of the Nissan LEAF Owners Australia and the Hyundai Ioniq and Kona Enthusiasts Facebook groups.

Bryce Gaton is editor of the AEVA newsletter and a writer for RenewEconomy and The Driven specialising in electric vehicles. He is also a regular contributor to our Renew magazine and you can find his fact sheets on available EVs here.
