The new package of electric vehicles that AGL Energy is delivering includes the EV subscription service, which entails the exposure of consumers to registered, verified, and insured electric cars, which come together with the implantation of home charging technology at a weekly price of $299. The inauguration of this product, which came incidentally on the World EV Day last Wednesday by AGL, is the newest talk in Australia labeled as the new Netflix of Evs.
AGL Energy plans to unveil the preliminary onetime program by collaborating with Carbar, the Melbourne motor-vehicle subscription service provider, and JET Charge, the well-known charging equipment company. AGL announced that this program would provide the known electric vehicle models like Tesla Model 3 at a subscription fee of $599 per week, Nissan Leaf for $299 a week, Hyundai Kona at $359 in a week, and other brands.
The limited number of models demonstrates the few numbers of EV brands in Australia because of stringent adherence motor vehicle policies and regulations that impede the quick and progressive transition to electric vehicles. Additionally, Tesla brands are the most expensive since they offer quality cars that travel for long mileage ranges before recharge.
Nevertheless, AGL anticipates the diversity in the brands of electric vehicles being supplied in the Australian market to increase over time if more programs like this grace the transportation industry. AGL Energy’s new executive John Chambers stated that this program would help the customers who are anxious to clear the electric vehicles’ speculations to test them before they can make their purchases.
Chambers explained that their focus as a firm is to clear the doubts and propaganda circulating concerning the electric vehicles to facilitate a smooth transition process to the clean energy cars. AGL approximates that 50% of new cars in the market by 2030 will be Evs even as it prepares to transform its commercial fleet into electric vehicles by the end of this new decade.
Chambers submits that the pilot program has no hidden contractual agenda. He says that the customers participating in this trial will receive the electric vehicle models at their homes together with the establishment of the charging systems but will be free to cancel, swap or expand the service at their convenience.
Chambers explained that the program might seem expensive in this period. Still, once the new models enter and diversify the market, they will enjoy economies of scale and make the electric vehicles affordable to all customers. Additionally, this trend will cheapen the cost of establishing a home charging system.
To sum up, these new developments and trends will manipulate the landscape and Australia’s air quality. The changes will place the country in right standing with the Paris agreement on environmental regulations.
