Workshop Journal #4: The Technology Paradox – How I Wish My Car Was More Like a Vacuum Cleaner.

There's a funny thing about company provided service vehicles - rarely do you get a say in what you end up with, that’s up to the fleet/purchasing manager after all. The one I ended up with would not have been my first choice of make and model, nor even my second, but somehow I have ended up with this tonne and a half of station-wagon packed with annoying, interventionist technology. It would seem then that for the next four years at least, me and this chunk of steel will have to learn to get along else it’s going to be a long quadrennial.

Victoria’s Electric Vehicle Duty: More Benefits for EVs than you might think…

There has already been much discourse about Victoria's electric vehicle tax and the way it will affect the future roll out of electric vehicles. Many will claim it’s a grab for cash by the government, others will claim it’s for road maintenance. Why couldn’t it be both? Not only this but also a good sign for the future of electric vehicles in this country? #electricvehicles #electriccar #greentech #renewables #futuretechnology #technology #EV #tax #EVtax #duty #levy #excise #tariff #toll #ZLEVcharge #ZLEV #tesla #rivian #supercharger #green #solar #Australia #AU #Victoria #vic #newsouthwales #NSW #southaustralia #SA #roads @timpallas @VicGovAU @VictorianLabor @LiberalVictoria @VictorianGreens @3aw @ABC
