Financial Independence Retire Early



In this episode we’re not talking about money or investing but rather touching on the sustainable side of the FIRE movement. Today my guest is Anthony Broese van Groenou, a sustainability expert, environmental scientist, PhD researcher and the co-founder of the Good Car Co. This company’s goal is to accelerate the uptake of Electric Vehicles in Australia by offering second-hand EVs at an affordable price.

Some of the topics we cover are:

  • Who is Anthony Broese van Groenou and what is the story behind the Good Car Co.? (03:24)
  • What options are there now for Australians who want to purchase an EV? (07:11)
  • What is the price range in Australia for second-hand EV’s atm? (12:44)
  • One of the most exciting features of EVs in my opinion is the two-way charging capabilities. What does this mean and what are the benefits? (20:27)
  • How much can an average Aussie expect to save on fuel and maintenance costs with an EV? (30:10)
  • How long does an EV battery last and what is the replacement cost? (31:46)
  • What about EV battery warranties – do they get passed on to the second-hand car owner? (34:54)
  • Do EV’s actually lower CO2 emissions when you factor in everything it takes to actually make the car and the battery? (44:20)
