Svi smo (nadam se) čuli za velikog hrvatsko-američkog izumitelja i vizionara Nikolu Teslu. No, jesmo li čuli za električna vozila Tesla?
The most beautiful and quietest rally in the world finished this year with a spectacular arrival on the main square, trg Bana Jelačića!
The fourth international „Nikola Tesla EV Rally Croatia 2017“ started traditionally in Istria, Poreč and 60 teams in 8 days drove the route called „Green Highway“ of 1.550 km through beautiful landscapes over five Island and six national parks.
Every year this innovative and unique premium tourist project that combine e-mobility, ecology and tourism promotes Croatia in the best possibl way in Europe and rest of the world and this year we „broke“ several records. There was the largest number of Tesla vehicles on a ferry boat as a part of one event and largest number of Tesla vehicles charging in one place at th same time.
This would not be possible without our partner HEP (goverment owned electricity distributor in croatia) who open the „grid“ so all vehicles could connect.
It was the first time that anyone tried something like this and succeed! We spent cca 4 to 5 MW during the hole rally and it“s very positive that HEP is among the first in Croatia to recognize the European trend for sustainable development in energy and transport sectors. In 2016. was awarded the title „Alternative fuel Ambassador“. So far they have set 37 charging stations part of their ELEN project and plan to double it till in next year.
