In 1898, the age of the car had arrived in NZ. It's 20 years later in Christchurch, and another revolutionary vehicle quietly makes its entrance ... meet NZ's first electric truck! Delivery man Mr O'Hare bets a hot pie that his petrol­engine truck can beat Mr Harris's electric vehicle. Who will win the race?
