ELECTRIKHANA 2015!

Post by jonescg » Fri, 30 Jan 2015, 04:55

Hey everybody!

Electrikhana 2015 is on soon - March 7th at the RAC DTEC. Where? Formerly known as the RAC Driving Centre, 16 Grogan Road, Perth International Airport. It's set to be the biggest one yet, with several new makes of EV to be on display, and most of them are available for test-drives and test rides.

We really need AEVA members who are keen to volunteer during the day. Things like fielding questions from the visitors, driver/passenger management and helping folks set up stalls.

Our first branch meeting for 2015 will be February 10th at UWA, so make sure you come along and get the run-down on the day's plans.

Let's make sure we double last year's attendance - aiming for 1000 visitors this time!

Feel free to send this flier around, print it and hang it in the office, plaster it on shopping centre walls and get out there on social media!

AEVA Perth member Frank Lister took delivery of his Model S last Tuesday. The local paper did a story on it, and included a nice big plug for Electrikhana 2015!

Mark Lutheridge (spelling?) will be bringing his Model S down to Electrikhana too!

Will those lucky owners of Model S be generous enough to allow 'peasants' like myself to drive their cars? If not, just as a measly passenger? Please please please?

The Tesla owners at last week's Perth Branch meeting indicated they would be happy to take passengers around the circuit.

I must admit, if I'd just paid > $100K for a brand new car, I'd be a bit nervous about letting strangers drive it, even on a small, controlled circuit! Still, you never know your luck.

Paper wrote: Tesla is the brainchild of American Elon Musk.


Really that's not how I recall it.
It was Martin Eberhard who was the brainchild.
Elon Musk just bought it out.

Yep!
"Tesla Motors was formed to develop an electric sports car. Eberhard was Tesla’s chief executive officer (CEO) and Tarpenning its chief financial officer (CFO). Funding for the company was obtained from a variety of sources, most notably PayPal cofounder Elon Musk, who contributed more than $30 million to the new venture and served as chairman of the company, beginning in 2004."

"In late 2007 Eberhard resigned as CEO and president of technology and joined the advisory board of the company. It was announced in 2008 that he had left the company, though he remained a shareholder. Tarpenning was vice president of electrical engineering, supervising the development of electronic and software systems for the roadster, and was CFO for several years. He also left the company in 2008."

If it didn't go up tonight, it will be on tomorrow night. I got a call from Syan saying it will probably go to air on Thursday.

Random quote wrote:"Tesla Motors was formed to develop an electric sports car. Eberhard was Tesla’s chief executive officer (CEO) and Tarpenning its chief financial officer (CFO)."


And to go back further, when Musk was still in diapers, there was the T-Zero.

Which has the AC-150 drive train and a range extender trailer.

The story came out quite well I think. The Perth Electric Car Show is indeed Electrikhana. Hopefully their details will appear on the Today Tonight website soon.

The audio wasn't great for what I assume was the RAC guy.
It would have been better with the pop-up bars with some names.

Other than that it came up pretty good.

Just a reminder that the Hyde Park Fair is on this weekend (March 1st-2nd) and the AEVA will have a stall there promoting Electrikhana, which is on the following weekend. Hope to spot you there!

Awesome he can make it. He can't bring a vehicle over though?

Shaping up to be a huge day. I'll be heading out there this afternoon to help set up. Can't wait to see the i8 cut a few laps!
