Post by tassie_tiger »

I've read a bit here and the concenous seems to be that most would like more ppl to be aware and become involved in the push to EV's.


So my question to you is this:


I have a contact in a major commercial network who may be interested in an EV story - so are YOU willing to go on TV? Preferably ppl who have completed or are close to completing their EV.

If so, can you PM me and while I make no promises as to whether it will get off the ground, I can put your details forward to the person.

What I need: Your name, suburb location, state, contact number, stage of EV completion.

I agree, getting EVs into the public eye should be a high priority for AEVA, and it's especially timely at present while everyone's complaining about fuel prices!

I don't like cameras myself (they might steal my soul?) but I'm going to dob in Tuarn Brown, Dave Waplington or Rob Mason for the job. They're ll EV owners with the necessary knowledge and credibility!

If I had an actual working EV, then I'd definitely go on the telly, but until then it's probably best for everyone's eyes that I stay away. :P


It might be an idea to set up a program for the local TV networks around the country - nobody really watches community TV, but it's a start.
I'll drive an electric vehicle one day.

Depends on the time frame, you could get some shots of the RMIT electric race car later in the year. Would need a bit of lead in time to get approval from the powers that be at uni and from our sponsors who may want to be there.

Until we get a finished car we are focusing on that.

Cheers

Thanks for the 2 PM's - will pass the info on.

Hopeful they will run with story as we're all aware here, it's good for the AEVA community and the overall community in all ways.

Taffy, your offering is probably one that would have more impact than my 1982 sierra. BTW are you in touch with the guys at www.therevproject.com ? They were talking SAE but now have purchased a lotus elise and going TS cells.

Thanks for name dropping hoops.... I think the MX5 will be a real eye openner though. You drive, I'll talk !

OK, I've emailed the details to my contact - would have preferred more than 2 offers, but I understand about being camera shy even if this is for the greater good. :)


Now I request you do something if you won't offer to go on TV!

Use the following forms (and perhaps duplicate this post on your own websites/forums/blogs) to request a segment on Electric Cars as the more ppl that ask, the better chance of it happening:

No i not heard of those guys, Uni of WA. They normally have what they are doing very well sorted and will be watching with interest. Might see about making a trip over to see what they are up too. Our project is heavily sponsored by AutoCRC and we are entering the SAE comp as a demo car.

As i said before, if shooting is not till later in the year october onwards then we will hopefully be sorted for a few demo shoots. Just let me know, we are more then happy to be TV stars Image.

Ok TT, did as you commanded ! Image

BTW, I offered this waffle if it helps anyone... Image
________________________________________________________________________

Fuel prices and our Electric Vehicle future...

To state what is blindingly obvious to everyone; crude oil will continue
to get more and more expensive as supply runs out.

Diesel and petrol prices will continue to rise above present levels even
after governments are forced by public pressure to remove their excise and
tax ....

But not until a lot of pain is caused to industry, commerce and the
"working family".

No amount of price watching will stop any of that.

... and then there is carbon emissions trading.
This seems like polluters buying their way out of their environmental responsibility.

Leadership in Australia must act to remove our dependence on oil and the
unfortunate link between government revenue and fuel that presently
dominates government thinking on energy and environmental issues.

Without this fundamental change we will not be free to embrace a
sustainable and environmentally responsible future.

We need to be advancing clean, renewable energy methods of transport such
as zero emission electric vehicles. This includes the expansion of existing and provision
of new electric rail as well as the general electrification of public
transport.
These alternatives will not come cheap but we cannot wait for the oil economy to squeeze the last cent out of us.

Please don't let any more Australian car manufacturers close down without
at least one of them being supported by Australians, through their
government, to build an Australian zero emission electric vehicle.

I must clarify here that the hybrid vehicle is not a solution. It will only prolong the agony.

If GM for instance is looking for a comeback strategy..... (they could do with one since their share prices are their lowest since 1946)
then they should leapfrog Toyota's hybrid and produce a pure electric EV now.
Not next year or 2012. Offer to the public a reasonable current technology EV even with it's limited range.
I believe they would be suprised at the public acceptance !

Nice Post.
You sound like a reporter.
I can picture you now standing in front of some eV's
We can park them outside Canberra Parliment with some people with picket signs.
"I want to breath clean air"
"I don't want to take it up the arse from the petrol companies"
"Rebates on batteries"
etc.etc...

I was listening to the radio the other day and there are 5 "Green" senators as of 1st July. Maybe we could offer them a shameless publicity stunt like dropping them at the first day of the new session of parliament in EVs? Any EVs in canberra?

cheers,

Anybody in front of the camera might need a few more arguments
and could use some of this from project better place. There is no need
for people to loose jobs but some for changing jobs.
Portugal is sighning up to PBP as well. Who will be next?
