Electric vehicles hold their own in the Perth to Sydney marathon

November 14 2022

The TOCEVA race team recently competed in the Perth to Sydney marathon, racing a Tesla 3 electric vehicle against over 100 other non-electric vehicles in the toughest of Australian conditions. The team consist of electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts, promoting EV uptake through motorsport. 

Horizon Power supported TOCEVA and their state-of-the-art mobile charge team by providing the electricity where there are no public chargers currently - but will be soon, as part of our WA EV Network.
