Electric vehicles are the future of motoring. If you’re a business that’s looking to go electric, or just want to see how one fits in your fleet, now’s your chance.

Orion is committed to helping people experience the benefits of carbon-free travel, and encouraging Canterbury’s transport sustainability. We operate the electricity network in central Canterbury.
