As we’ve noted in the past, more and more solar companies are buying or leasing EVs such as the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt, Mitsubishi iMiEV, etc. and ad-wrapping them to help sell solar, and their solar company, as a clean, green ticket to auto fueling independence.
Of course, until now, the solar companies we’ve found which have ad-wrapped an EV to help sell their wares, and, more broadly, solar-charged driving, were all located in the United States.
Add Australia as another country in which at least one solar firm is tapping the power of EVs as a rolling marketing machine for solar.
Solar Choice, a Sydney, Australia solar company, has been using an ad-wrapped Mitsubishi iMiEV with its company logo and colors to advertise itself as well as solar-charged driving for about six months.
As Solar Choice notes in a blog entry about its ad-wrapped iMiEV, in addition to being CO2 emissions-free, the iMiEV is also noise-free.
Of course, while it might be quieter than some vehicles, the ad-wrapped Solar Choice iMiEV does end up making quite a bit more noise than other vehicles in one important respect: It shouts to the world about the exciting synergy between EV + PV 🙂
