The Electric Vehicle Road Trip Africa, which took place from October 2 – 10, made its way across South Africa for the very first time. EVRTA embarked on a road trip across the country, starting in Johannesburg and ending off in Cape Town, with a visit to Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm en route. Twelve state-of-the-art electric vehicles commenced their unprecedented journey from Johannesburg to Cape Town, via Bloemfontein, Gariep Dam, Port Elizabeth, Knysna and Worcester. “We are very excited to be part of this show-case event and look forward to welcoming the high-tech electric vehicles to our wind farm,” said Anna Letsoalo, Senior Economic Development Officer for Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm. She added, “With the unprecedented growth potential of the African continent and the rapid urbanisation of the region, it is expected that electric cars will feature prominently in South Africa and across our Northern boarders”. Pictured are Generation.e’s Chief Executive, Ben Pullen, with Julie Wurtz, Marketing Manager for the United Arab Emirates based company.
