The atmosphere was electric at the Launceston Showgrounds on Sunday as cars were put in charge.
Hosted by the Australian Electric Vehicle Association and Tamar NRM, Electric Experience gave members of the public the opportunity to ride in different electric cars.
Included in Sunday’s fleet was a BMW 13 94AH electric vehicle, which was purchased by Westbury’s Anne Wennegal and her partner last month.
Ms Wennegal said although she had been meaning to make the switch “for quite a while”, it did take some getting used to.
“There is a great deal of difference in the responsiveness of the accelerator,” she said.
“You end up doing very little braking, because the accelerator does it for you a lot of the time.”
The Electric Experience comes after the release of a consultation paper to seek public comment on the state government’s approach to supporting the installation of chargers that are accessible to the public.
Environment Minister Elise Archer said the feedback received will inform the development of a strategy to “ensure the funding achieves the greatest benefit for Tasmania by increasing public electric vehicle charging opportunities state-wide, and providing the best possible user-experience for Tasmanians and visitors to the state”.
