Cargo bikes

Cargo bikes are increasingly popular to get a load from A to B. Click here for more information.

Bike Trailers

 

An alternative to cargo bikes (and generally much cheaper) are bike trailers. We bought this one recently (from Star Cycles at Elizabeth) and it is great for a picnic, or a trip to the supermarket.

Electric vehicles

New fully electric vehicles are available on the Australian market now. See this blog for ev information, or visit the Australian Electric vehicle Association  http://www.aevasa.kestar.com.au/ here

The Nissan Leaf is the car I am daydreaming about at the moment! Here are some quick points:

  • 100% electric motor
  • Up to 170km on a full charge
  • Control many car features from your smart phone
  • Satellite Navigation and Reversing Camera with Predictive Path Technology
  • “ANCAP 5-star safety rating
