Agfest

Agfest is a large agricultural show in central Tasmania.

This year AEVA Tas hosted an EV Hub on Ninth Avenue.  We rolled out the carpet for the following vehicles:

  • Tesla Model 3
  • Mitsubish Outlander (2021 & 2014 models)
  • Nissan Leaf (30 kWh, 40 kWh & 60 kWh models)
  • Hyundai Kona
  • Hyundai Ioniq
  • BMW i3
  • Audi e-Tron
  • Subaru Brumby (conversion)
  • Toyota Echo (conversion)
  • Suzuki Mighty Boy (conversion)
  • Ubco farm bikes

We also displayed an array of garden maintenance equipment, a model F1 race car and a remote-controlled toy excavator.  Plus we had our display panels, fact sheets and lots of people to talk to.
At one stage someone went over to the Zippi Bikes site and convinced them that one of their kids' bikes would be great on our stand!  So we had one of those for a while as well.

A big thank you to these businesses and organisations also displayed at our site:

  • Farmers for Climate Action
  • The Good Car Company
  • I Want Energy
  • Evie Networks
  • Electric Highway Tasmania
  • Bennett's Petroleum
  • Tas Networks
  • Audi
  • Launceston Mitsubishi
  • Motors
