    Thanks Gabz. I won't be able to have my Tesla there this year, but hopefully next. I will check it out this time though.

    they confirmed today that the only EV that there are less of in Australia than the model s the Renault twizy will be there. in terms of car companies Renault and Nissan will be there officially. Holden Mitsubishi and Tesla have been invited but no word back from them yet. as far as I know.

    If only Twizy's could be sold and registered in Australia.

    Why? They really are golf carts - slow, limited range, strange looking... The opposite of Tesla

    great for inner city motoring & short trips, I can fit 2 or maybe 3 in my parking spot. Its not a Tesla but its a lot more than a golf cart

    if you think outside the box you can see a use. if you uses it as a car sharing same way as the bikes they only cost 10-15k each and weather proof. better than a taxi.

    For those who venture to the festival I think you will find a Tremendously Exciting Silent Lightwarp Automobile there.

    Nice. I'm hoping to get along to Evolocity at Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna, Christchurch NZ on November 30th. They have some interesting vehicles coming for the US although I doubt there will be a Tesla S..... unless SteveW has his by then and he feels like a long drive.[FONT=Open Sans, sans-serif] :)[/FONT]

    ... And a great Delorean - battery powered. Great to chat again to Stone and to catch up with Heosat.

    I did also enjoy a nice little red vixen staying over for the night ;-)

    yes when they said that the p85+ blue was fully charged I assumed it went to visit one of the i think 2 Newcastle preorders of the model s. might even be more than 2.

    so i didn't mean you I met some other bloke who turned up in a Tesla roadster light blue colour. he had the number plate "NOFUEL"
