Transport Minister Simon Bridges has made the switch to an electric car, saying they are not just for “new age tofu eaters”. Bridges recently purchased two plug-in hybrid vehicles - a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV for himself and an Audi e-Tron for his wife Natalie. His last car was a diesel-powered Hyundai Santa Fe. “Now that I’ve done it I wouldn’t go back,” Bridges said. “To the non-believers out there, I’d say try one.”
