Beyond Gardens Presents our new series of seminars- Beyond Petrol - Electric Cars

A special series of Beyond Petrol events proudly supported by the City of Cockburn, Town of Cambridge and the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) WA branch. Our aim is to present a series of community seminars to inform, prepare and encourage the community to embrace the Electric Vehicle revolution. It is a lot closer than you think! Some estimates that Electric Cars will outsell Petrol cars by 2030. Seminars are full of humour as the Beyond Petrol Team highlight how the future of driving is electric.
