Hi, I’m James.

I make websites, and many years ago worked on NZ’s motor vehicle registration system.

I started EVDB in October 2021. It’s a one-man project that I’m constantly improving – alongside NZ’s slow transition into the electric era.

I finally managed to buy a 2014 Nissan Leaf in early 2019. In my household that’s been driven alongside my 2010 Mazda 6 wagon. At last count my Mazda 6 is costing over 17x more to run than the Leaf. I think we can see where this is all going…

Which EV would I get if I had a spare $100k?

The top-end Kia EV6 looks pretty good.

How can I get in touch?

Find anything on the site useful? Interested in EV data or research? Or maybe a suggestion or question about website content?
