    A suggestion the devil is in the detail when it comes to the Greens' plans for zero emission vehicles

    A suggestion the devil is in the detail when it comes to the Greens' plans for zero emission vehicles


    The party wants to require all new imported light vehicles to have zero emissions by 2030.

    Auckland University director of the energy centre Basil Sharp says we're among the highest in terms of car ownership per capita.

    He says we hold onto our cars for an average of 14 years - so we have to deal with the status quo so to speak.
