It was just an ideal day for the Nikola Tesla EV Rally 2015 which brought many electric cars in the center of the city. Almost entire Banus Josip Jelacic square was occupied with the track which was used as a polygon for those electric cars. I really hoped that they will bring Tesla, or even BMW i8, but they’ve disappointed me. I think that it wouldn’t be so hard to bring those cars, but yet, I haven’t seen them there.
Mitsubishi, Renault, Volkswagen…
…were there with their models MiEV, ZOE, Up and e- Golf. I’ve already seen those cars in traffic, but I didn’t have a chance to check them more, or even to photograph them. Besides the fact they disappointed me because they didn’t bring Tesla and i8, the event was really cool! A lot of tyre squeal, but without the engine sound.
Besides the manufacturers cars, there were also homemade electric cars like the Daewoo Tico, Trabant, Citroen Saxo..
I wish there would be more events like this one. Ok, I miss the sound of engines, but I guess, this is the future and it doesn’t look so bad.
