I saw it! at the charging station in Cambridge  NZ, opposite the town hall, which is the nearest town to me. Green "Jucy" van, very small for a campervan.

International tourists visiting New Zealand could be hitting the roads in
electric campervans within two years if a new electric vehicle trial proves
successful.

Auckland-based company Jucy Rentals will trial a full-electric Nissan
E-NV200 campervan with the help of two overseas tourists.

During their journey, two visiting French students will travel thousands of
kilometres throughout the North Island in a prototype Jucy campervan,
powered only by electricity.

The tourists plan to visit about 30 destinations in the North Island over
three-weeks.

Jucy CEO Tim Alpe says the company aims to introduce a new category of
electric vehicle to its fleet to meet growing demand from millennial
tourists.

“Electric vehicles are the future of the Jucy campervan fleet and this trial
is the ideal platform to test our product offering for customers.

“This market segment in particular wants more environmentally-sustainable
travel options. At the same time this gives our tourists more choice and
cheaper running costs.”

Alpe says further expansion of the programme will need additional investment
in charging infrastructure and vehicles that can travel further distances.

“Campervans are the perfect vehicle to be electrically powered as tourists
tend to drive during the day and can then recharge overnight at their
campground.

“One of the biggest barriers we will face in the short term is lack of
infrastructure to support EV charging.

“We are working with camping grounds to introduce suitable facilities for
overnight charging but there is also a need to bring in rapid chargers on
the roads between main centres.

“At the same time, there are range limitations of the vehicles that need to
be overcome to ensure tourists can travel long distances across the country,
without the need to constantly recharge their battery.

“Our future as a sustainable tourist market will be short-lived if our
customer experience is impacted by the range their vehicle can travel each
day.”

The company plans to introduce charging stations at their branches and
hotels across NZ and Australia. -Driven
