Follow our EV


GreenCape has recently partnered with BMW South Africa to arrange a year-long paid-for lease of a BMW i3 electric vehicle (EV).  By replacing one of the three leased vehicles in the company fleet with the BMW i3, we hope to explore the new world of EVs, identifying some of unexpected positives and challenges in this fast emerging sector in South Africa.

Keen observers are welcome to follow our journey both here, and on twitter (@thegreencape) where we will be posting updates on our EV using the hastag #FollowourEV.

As part of the process, we've asked our staff to write down their thoughts following their first experience of driving the EV and we will periodically be publishing these.

The views expressed by individuals are precisely that, their own views!
