Whirl is a purpose-driven digital platform that empowers its customers to build confidence in new technologies (starting with electric cars and their chargers) by building a peer network to help customers navigate a complex purchasing process without sales pressure. We provide learning materials, chat sessions with real-world EV owners, and EV test-drives in your local community. 

 

Accelerating the transition to a clean economy is our mission and electric cars are an important step in making that societal shift. But, we also know there is A LOT to learn before you are ready to make the lifestyle change to EV.

 

The real-world experience with an electric car is known to be the deciding factor for most people thinking of buying one. But, finding an EV to test out on your terms, without any sales pressure, can be a challenge. Inspired by the concept of “giving (something new) a whirl”, like a little kid sharing a scooter with a friend, Whirl has created a marketplace that unlocks a new option for a real-world EV-experience. 

 

Whirl's growth as a platform was recently acknowledged as being announced as one of Australia’s top 3 cleantech startups in Australia (read here).
