AEVA is a volunteer-run organisation that represents current and future EV owners. Starting in 1973, they’re the longest running EV society in the world.

For over 50 years, AEVA have been partnering with the government to help make it easier to own an EV. This includes adding charging stations, raising awareness on EV benefits, and supporting the growth of Australia’s EV market. They’re also one of the leading sources of EV information in Australia.

AEVA work with a range of EV enthusiasts, industry professionals, and policymakers to support their members. This includes:

  • Branch-run events like EV education workshops
  • EV guides and factsheets
  • Industry events and webinars
  • Discounts on EV-related products

AEVA is all about creating a community and fostering connection. They’ve set up branches across Australia made up of like-minded people who’ve made the switch to and are passionate about EVs.

These branches offer regular meetings that allow members to share their EV knowledge and experiences. They offer workshops on various topics like EV technology, benefits, costs, infrastructure, and charging.

AEVA branches also support local councils and community groups by organising and taking part in events that promote EVs and sustainable living.

The EV space can be tricky amidst the various myths that are thrown around. To make sure everyone has the right information, AEVA offer free-to-use EV guides and factsheets on their website.

These factsheets help potential buyers compare different models and specifications to choose an EV that best suits their needs. Some of the key areas covered in these factsheets include:

  • Make and Model of EV
  • Type (SUV, passenger, etc.)
  • Range and battery size
  • Charging speeds
  • Tow rating
  • Price

For those looking at making the switch a bit further down the track, there are also upcoming EV model factsheets. AEVA frequently update this list as more EV models become available.

AEVA organises an annual conference and EV expo to bring together industry and members of the public.

Their expo helps the public see the latest EVs, trucks, motorcycles, and bikes all in one place. They also offer activities including test-drives and rides in EVs.

The expo moves to a different city each year, with recent events taking place in Canberra and Perth. To see if it’s heading your way, check out AEVA’s event calendar.

For industry, they host webinars that share new EV trends and insights. These webinars are open to everyone, whether you're an AEVA member or just interested in the latest EV news.

AEVA members can also get discounts on EV products such as EV charging cables, chargers, e-bikes, and more.

While the list of discounts is increasing with time, offerings may vary so check in with AEVA for the latest information.

If you're interested in becoming a member, you can unlock these benefits by paying a small annual fee.

If you’re not quite ready to become a member, you can sign up to AEVA’s free mailing list to receive email updates. You can also attend free local AEVA events and have your EV questions answered by other owners and experts.
