Flip The Fleet is a community project that empowers you to play a vital part in building a brighter future for electric transport in New Zealand. All you need to do is share your own EV story with us…
Our goal is to accelerate uptake of electric vehicles in New Zealand by:
Providing scientific data
on EV use, cost savings, efficiency, battery health and environmental benefits.
Us, helping each other
by sharing data on our vehicles’ performance in New Zealand conditions so that business investment in infrastructure, public policy and our own choices maximise the benefits and pleasure of EV ownership.
Informing the debate
so that we can reliably counter misperceptions about EV constraints and benefits.
“How do I play my part?”
1. Register your EV
In order for you to get involved, we need some details about you and your EV. To start registration, just click on your EV model in the section below! Hint: if you don’t have an EV, you should buy one!
2. Enter data each month
The driving force behind FlipTheFleet is a pretty smart online data collection system – we aim to gather as much similar data from EV owners across New Zealand, and then collate it all into one big pool for some serious analysis.
3. Watch the project grow!
As more and more EV owners begin contributing their data, the amount of interesting stuff we publish will increase. Saying that, a few reports about your EV and “the FLEET” will be available to you right away.
No matter if your EV is your own, belongs to your business, or if you manage a whole fleet of cars for your employer, we want you to join in and report your data.
Oh! We almost forgot: as long as you contribute data, Flip The Fleet is totally free to join and to use!
“Sounds great, SIGN ME UP!”
We need more background at first, but will not bother you much afterwards. And to keep the lawyers happy, check out legal stuff.
Right-o, let’s start! What kind of EV do you want to register?

“I can’t contribute data, but… I like this project!
Can I keep in touch?”
Sure!!! Fill out the form below and we’ll keep you up to date. Easy!
“So who’s behind all this?”
The list of our supporters is getting pretty long, and we promise we’ll publish all of you guys somewhere on this website shortly.
For now, here’s a bit on Henrik and Dima, the two Nissan Leaf-owning founders:
Henrik is an ecologist and environmental sustainability scientist. He was a Review Editor for the Australasian chapter of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 4th Assessment report. Henrik is the principal researcher at Ecosystems Consultants Ltd and is Science Leader of the NZ Sustainability Dashboard, an online system rather like this one for helping farming families and processors to be more sustainable.
Dima spends most of his days showing business owners how they can improve their performance based on industry benchmarks, generated by his company PowerStats.
Dima holds a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Transport Design (Massey University Scholar, 1st Class Hons) and is also an advisory board member to Massey University Master of Business Analytics course.
