Being an early adopter can be daunting. So we gave select Victorian customers an EV – a Nissan LEAF – to try for up to 10 days. Participants had the chance to really test the car’s performance and understand how this technology would fit into their home, workplace and lifestyle.
Our test-drivers captured their experiences on video, letting us know what they liked about driving an EV, things that surprised them, and things that might make it easier for them to make the switch permanently. See EV Experience participants’ stories.
- Transurban EV Drive Day for fleet managers
Recognising fleet managers’ significant buying power and impact on the second-hand vehicle market each year, we hosted our first ever Transurban EV Drive Day in 2023. On the day, around 50 fleet managers took different EVs out for a spin and heard from industry experts and peers who already have EVs in their fleets.
The Transurban EV Drive Day was presented in partnership with Origin and the Australasian Fleet Management Association.

The Parliamentary Friends of Electric Vehicles and Future Fuels Transport group comprises more than 30 Federal MPs from across the political spectrum.

- EV incentives to promote vaccinations
During the pandemic, we played our part to support Australia’s COVID-19 vaccine roll out by rewarding fully vaccinated Linkt customers with the opportunity to win over $160,000 worth of prizes, including two new Hyundai Kona Elite EVs.
Over 400,000 people entered the competition, and two lucky customers in Sydney and Brisbane are now enjoying their new EVs.
