A couple of months into its research, Eskom is already a step closer to understanding user behaviour, infrastructure requirements and expected challenges with the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) into the South African market.

In May, Eskom received 10 Nissan Leaf all-electric cars as part of a research project to study the charging requirements and characteristics of EVs. According to Eskom GM for research, testing and development, Barry MacColl, Eskom has signed a lease-agreement with Nissan to conduct the research over a period of three years.

Only a few months into the research, a few interesting facts have already emerged. MacColl says each car is fitted with a tracker device that monitors where and how far the vehicle goes. Each Leaf also has device on board that records certain information. Eskom has already done 3 375 trips totalling 36 142km over 1 193 hours with the vehicles.
