This paper aims to provide a global review of electric vehicle developments in a New Zealand context. This encompasses the New Zealand and worldwide market for electric vehicles; the policy decisions and regulations that influence this market, as well as the manufacturing and transport industries; and the resulting effect of electric vehicle uptake on the environment and health. From this it is determined whether or not New Zealand could act as a driver for EV adoption and policy, and in turn become a leader in green transportation systems.
