Wellard Tech and Tinkering

A few of us met at Wellard Community Tech and Tinkering today.  They had awesome demos of VR and AR and 3D Printing, and we set up outside and had some great chats with people coming and going.

Remember that we’re also at Heathcote tomorrow around midday for a couple of hours if you want to come and say hello, or talk about ordering a Model 3.

Casual Meetup – Sunday 2nd June at 12pm

This weekend’s casual meetup will be at the Heathcote Reserve – 58 Duncraig Road, Applecross starting at 12pm

There is a café and steakhouse there, so we can decide when we’re there how hungry we are!

Tesla Owners Club is invited to an Electric Vehicle Council Update

The federal election has come and gone and in a result with twists that would rival Game of Thrones, the Coalition has been returned to power.  So, what does this mean for Australia’s electric vehicle industry?

To answer that question, Western Power will host the Electric Vehicle Council and their members at a networking event.

Hear from CEO Behyad Jafari who will provide an update on the current landscape of EV politics and policy and the next steps for the industry.   This will be followed by networking and refreshments.

Date:           Tuesday, 4 June 2019 

Time:           5.30pm for 6.00pm – 7.30pm 

Where:        Western Power, 363 Wellington Street Perth 

RSVP:           Please RSVP here

Please forward this invite to anyone else you think might be interested.

We look forward to seeing you there.

May 11th Drive Day

Our May Drive Day on May 11th was a run out to Toodyay.


We met at Mondo Nougat and set off for Toodyay in time for a late lunch at the Victoria Hotel.

Annoyingly, the two 22kW EO chargers in Northam that we’d tested were still less than perfect – Joseph managed to charge, but the second charger was misbehaving.  We’ll raise it with them again and see if they can be made more reliable.

Model 3 is coming

Hold on to your hats, people.


The Good, The Bad and the Smogly

Committee Member, Harald was on the ABC this morning with Jo Trilling along with Richard Baird talking about all things EV and Tesla – You can catch up here:

Monthly Casual Tesla Owner Meetups

The committee has had a couple of things planned for the start of 2019, both of which ran into organisational hiccups, but will re-appear later in the year.

As a means of allowing for some interaction, and for potential new owners to come and see Tesla vehicles for themselves, we’re planning to have monthly “casual” meetups – swapping between a weekend daytime event and a mid-week evening event each month. Our first meetup in this new format was Sunday 7th April at Leederville Sporting Club

The meetings will be informal, but we’ll plan to have at least a couple of the committee and their cars at each meetup, so you can come and ask questions, meet other owners, and maybe grab a refreshment or two.

The upcoming casual meetups are:

  • Wednesday May 1st at The Gate, Cockburn
  • Sunday June 2nd at Heathcote Reserve
  • Wednesday July 3rd at Leederville Sporting Club
  • Sunday August 4th at TBA South of the River Location
  • Wednesday September 4th at City Beach
