Electrikhana Perth 2017 – Test Drive an EV

It’s on again! Electrikhana is being staged at the RAC driving centre, 16 Grogan Road Perth Airport. It runs from 9am – 4pm on 11th March.  This event is staged annually by the Perth branch of the Australian EV Association and is drawing bigger crowds every year. Its success can be partly attributed to the ability for any licensed driver to test drive an EV around the RAC track. A range of vehicles will be on display including Tesla, Nissan, BWM, Porsche, Holden, Mitsubishi together with some very alluring do it yourself vehicles. Electric bikes and scooters will be there for those who favour two wheeled transport. Sustainable technology displays will also feature at the event.

This is a great day out for the family. Entry is a miserly $5 but if you want to test drive vehicles pay another $5 at the door and bring your drivers license. There are plenty of very knowledgeable EV enthusiasts in attendance and of course we’ll be there also. MEC is a member of the AEVA and we can vouch for this terrific event. As the show falls on the same day as the WA State Election our advice is to vote early then forget about politics and have a bit of fun.  See you there!

About the Author:

Had a car converted to EV in 2008 - established MY ELECTRIC CAR 2009 - had the pleasure of driving the Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model S (P85D) the BMW i3 and the Renault Zoe & Kangoo - all incredible! Predicts the wave of change to EVs in a much bigger way towards the end of 2016 and through 2017/2018. Also predicts big changes to car ownership when autonomous drive cars gain traction (2020 - 2025).

    I was all ready to test drive a Zero, or any of the bikes, but there were none to test drive!
    Great display, shame Zero did not have a stall. I think they might have sold a few. I was ready to drop $20k on one today.

    Can’t wait for electric cars to become the norm.
    Come on governments- get on board.

    Sorry I missed this. I have a converted Sirion with 80km range but I am keen to get another once they become more available and not ridiculously expensive. Still baffled why we have no incentives in this country!

      Re the incentives Pete. It would seem that both major parties are owned by the mining/fossil industry. They are neatly tied up in a bribery and corruption bag called ‘Political Donations’.
