The 3rd “Nikola Tesla EV Rally Croatia 2016” is over

The year’s largest and most important e-mobility event in Croatia and the region

The world’s most beautiful rally, as LA Times said about Nikola Tesla EV Rally, took place in Croatia 01-05.06.2016. Around hundred participants from all over Europe rode the approximately 1200 km-long route through Croatia, in order to promote e-mobility, green technologies and renewable energy sources. The Rally’s Organiser was E.v.a. Blue from Zagreb. The owners are proud of the following participants’ taking part: Croatian companies Rimac Automobili with Concept One and Concept S and Dok-ing with their Loox vehicle, as well as over 40 Tesla Model S vehicles. The Rally is special in being the first exclusively electric vehicles rally that took place in this part of Europe and the only one of that type in the world. On a 1200 km-long route, over 100 guests from France, Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria and Germany, Canada, USA and South Africa had the opportunity to know Istria, the Paklenica, Krka and Plitvice Lakes National Parks, see the famous Greeting to the Sun in Zadar, take a walk around the old nucleus in the city of Šibenik, visit the Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, and finish their journey in the main Zagreb square, Ban Jelačić Square. It is interesting to note the participation of the following: Mr Mate Rimac, the owner of Rimac Automobili, Mr Vjekoslav Majetić, the owner of Dok-ing; and Mr Krešimir Macan, a renowned Croatian PR expert and owner of Manjgura; it was the first Tesla vehicle experience for him, but certainly not the last. The Rally’s route is also the “Green electric tourist coastal road”, because the main determinants of the project are promotion of Croatian tourist offer and setting up filling stations on attractive locations. Prior to the rally, we set up and had a gala opening of two more for Valamar rivijera d.d. in May. “Through this innovative concept, we are proud of the opportunity to show Croatia as a tourist destination having a huge potential for attracting this type of tourists, environmentally aware and more well-off; while paving the way for quality guests Croatian tourism wishes for.” – said Tina and Igor Kolovrat, the Rally’s Organisers. They are announcing new rally extensions soon, to be presented in the next two months.   Winners of 3.rd „Nikola Tesla EV Rally Croatia 2016“:
