Kāpiti Electric Vehicle Society
Accelerating Kāpiti’s transition towards sustainable transportation.
Our aim is too educate and encourage Kāpiti Coast residents of the many benefits of electrified transportation.
Transportation, in one form or another, is used by almost every resident of the Kāpiti Coast. These forms of transport include; skateboards, scooters, cycles, cars, vans, trucks, buses, trams, trains, watercraft and aircraft.
Looking to a sustainable future
Currently many of these methods of transit are not environmentally friendly. This means they are not sustainable transport solutions. At KEVS we look towards a future with clean and sustainable transportation.
We are proudly independent and not affiliated with any large organisations or sponsors. Bring on the rEVolution!
