In 1898, New Zealand's first motor car rumbled onto a bustling Wellington street. The age of the car had arrived. It's twenty years later in Christchurch, and another revolutionary vehicle quietly makes its entrance ... meet New Zealand's first electric truck! Delivery man Mr O'H...are bets a hot pie that his petrolengine truck can beat Mr Harris's electric vehicle. Who will win the race?

His clever little truck set us off on a journey to the future - batteries included!
