There was a definite buzz in Wanaka during International Drive Electric Week (IDEW), as electric vehicle enthusiasts took to the streets to promote their beloved vehicles.
On Tuesday, Wanaka EV Owners Club Coordinator Morgan Knoesen gave a presentation to the Mt Aspiring Retirement Village called World Peace Starts with your Electric Car which was very well received by the residents.
Their Wednesday night screening of Revenge of the Electric Car at Cinema Paradiso attracted the most customers of the day, with 33 people attending.
On Thursday, people got the chance to look around the EVs and talk to the owners. This was a great opportunity to help dispel any myths and to give first-hand accounts on EV ownership.
Test drives also took place along the waterfront one morning which attracted a solid 2 hours of discussion and 5 test drives.
Thank you to Wanaka EV Owners Club, Morgan, and the other members for your fantastic efforts during International Drive Electric Week.
