Right now, there are about 2,300 fully electric vehicles (EVs) on West Australian roads, and Kat Zulak has one of them.

She bought her EV three years ago and one of the things she loves most about it is that she never has to go to a service station for fuel.

“It’s one of the best parts of owning an EV — never having to line up at the servo. I swear, that alone just eliminates all other minor inconveniences,” Dr Zulak said.

Instead, she just drives home each night, plugs her car into the home power supply and recharges it overnight.

“It’s just like plugging in your phone. You just get in the habit of doing it right before you go to bed, you plug in your phone,” she said.
