Electric car display at WED Festival, Sunshine Coast

On Sunday 7th June, the electric car display which I’d organised all came together.  With seven cars on display, the most varied display of factory-made* electric cars to take place in Queensland, there was great interest.  We had hundreds of people come and see and photograph and talk about the cars.  The owners were all so great to bring their cars along and spend hours chatting to people and answering questions.  I also had a display about EVs, and my Nissan Leaf was part of the “WED Festival Trail” passport, which brought lots  of people our way to do a quick activity and get a stamp for a competition entry.  My only regret is that I didn’t have more time to take photos, particularly during the really busy times of the day.  We had two Nissan Leafs, two BMW i3s, a Mitsubishi I-miev, a Tesla Model S 85D+, all brought along by their generous owners.  We were also provided with a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUV by Caloundra City Autos.

*factory-made as EVs, rather than cars converted to electric later on
