Ex-pat Aucklander Ed Kjaer says the long-term economic gains for New Zealand from electric vehicles are beyond those that can be expected for many other countries.

Kjaer is an expert on electric vehicles (EVs), and he makes his living working for one of the largest American utility companies, Southern California Edison (SCE).

California is the electric vehicle capital of the US so Kjaer has seen first-hand their potential to transform motoring and wean economies off dependency on imported oil.
