Dunedin EV Big Day Out!

Forsyth Barr Stadium Harbour Carpark and ODT covered stand area.
From 11AM - 12
DUNEDIN EV OWNERS PARK UP, RECORD ATTEMPT AND “DUNEDIN EV FAMILY” PHOTO
RECORD ATTEMPT – We will be having an attempt at the NZ record for the most EVs in one place at the same time, currently held by Christchurch (100). Dunedin has 200 plus EVs so we think this is achievable. Otago currently has the 2nd most EVs per 1000 capita in NZ. We would like everyone of those 200 plus EV owner to come to this part of the event for the record attempt and photo. While e-bikes will not be included in the official tally we welcome all e-bike owners to participate in the photo as well.
PHOTO - We will be taking a group photo of the EV park-up and families in Dunedin to document this milestone of early EV adoption in Dunedin’s EV history. Something to show our children and grandchildren in 2050!
Nuts and bolts - EV Owners to arrive from 10.30 for vehicle park-up. See marshalls in the car park for directions. There will be spot prizes for participating EV owners.
12- 3PM. PUBLIC EVENT
FIND OUT ABOUT EVs and TAKE A DRIVE IN AN ELECTRIC CAR.
Meet local EV owners and talk to them about their experience of EV ownership in Dunedin and the wider Dunedin area. Nine models of Electric Vehicles will be available for test rides and test drives.* There will also be electric bikes on display and available for test rides and live music, science demonstrations, remote control cars, face painting and food vendors. Myth busting, charging demonstrations, EV apps, spot prizes and more! Family friendly FREE event.
