Virgin Australia Voyeur - - EXEC STYLE - Words CAMERON McGAVIN

Aus­tralian buy­ers prob­a­bly feel like they’ve been sit­ting on the thin edge of the elec­tric-car wedge for, well, for­ever. Yes, they’ve been a con­sumer re­al­ity now for sev­eral years, but with a very lim­ited se­lec­tion of ve­hi­cles. How­ever, things are chang­ing fast. This time last year the Aus­tralian elec­tric-car mar­ket was a cou­ple of Tes­las (the Model S sedan and Model X SUV) and BMW’s i3 small car. By Christ­mas that choice will have more than dou­bled, thanks to a rush of elec­tron-fu­elled prod­uct in the sec­ond half of 2018.
