2016 E-Rally Dominated By Tesla Model S, Raises 34,700 Euro To Combat Climate Change
A total of 94 Tesla Model S sedans gathered for this year’s edition (and third overall) of the E-rally in the Netherlands.
Due to the requirement of a 250 km (155 miles) range, this year’s rally was limited to only Model S entrants.
Notably, Tesla itself has become one of the main sponsors for the E-rally, and brought a Model X with them to show off to participants and onlookers..
As a special bonus, the 2016 E-rally also raised €34,700 for projects in Morocco to combat climate change.
“The start/finish line was in the city of Zwolle – where one of Tesla’s Superchargers is located – and stretched on a touristic route all the way to Tesa’s Store & Service in Amsterdam-Zuidoost. The race consisted of multiple courses and a performance challenge.
The participants were greeted at the Tesla Store with goodiebags where a Model X in shade of blue was on display on arrival. The organization managed to collect 34,700 Euro worth of donations for Justdiggit where they will be invested in projects in Morocco to combat climate change. The 2015 edition had 225 electric vehicles driving a total of 42.800 km and emitting 0.0 g/km of CO2.”
