WA - Sustainability Suppliers Day
6th November 2023
By Chris Johnson
TOCA teamed with AEVA for a Sustainability suppliers' day on October 18 at Technology Hub attached to Curtin University. The event was organised by WA government Department of Transport and was a closed event for various government agencies to see what sustainable products were available in WA.
David King (pictured with the organiser, Callie Cummings from DOT) and David Lloyd from TOCA offered rides in their Model 3s, as did Chris Jones from AEVA in his Hyundai EV. The static Model Y on display also attracted a fair bit of interest. The WA government appears to have had an epiphany about EVs and there were no negative comments about them, nor about Teslas. a secondary effect from this event was that around 10 WA DOT employees and managers were granted leave and registration for the National AEVA conference and expo on November 3-5.
