Hey Perth EV folks!

Scitech (my employer Image) are hosting the opening of the Perth Science Festival in Northbridge tomorrow (Saturday the 16th of August). It's part of Science Week, and there's stacks of events and activities going on around the country.

AEVA will be setting up a stall at 8 am tomorrow in front of the WA Museum, entry via the Beaufort street side of James Street!

I am looking for two electric cars and some bikes to park up and help me man the stall for the day. If you can lend a vehicle and/or some time, please get in touch - 0422191511.

See you there!
Chris

it's a little disappointing type 2 plug but only appears to be single phase. and only a 3kw charger with no fast charging options the Nissan nv200 is a better choice.
