Conference - 9 and 10 November

The Conference will cover topics such as:

  • fleet purchases
  • charging networks
  • electric conversions
  • trade display

Shannons Insurance Electric Vehicle Display - 11 November

This EV Show will be held at Roundhouse Park on the Devonport Waterfront. You can expect to see home-built vehicles, motorbikes, scooters, and electric-assist bicycles. The nearby CMax theatre will be hosting a forum and presentation on electric vehicles in Tasmania. There will be trade displays on transport, sustainability, electricity and also tourism, as there are likely to be a lot of interstate guests. Registration is free if you'd like to enter your vehicle in the show.

Group Drive - 12 November

If you have an Electric Vehicle or plug-in Hybrid, you could join the Mitsubishi Motors Cradle Mountain Charge. This group drive will travel from Devonport to Cradle Mountain, with plenty of charging stations along the way. Tickets are $30 for a driver and car, and include lunch, charging at Gowrie Park and entry to the reception at Cradle Mountain. Passengers and drivers in non-electric vehicles are also welcome, at the same ticket price of $30.
