    Rally for electric vehicles

    The most beautiful and the quietest rally in the world is being held again this year. The fourth international “Nikola Tesla EV Rally Croatia 2017” traditionally starts in Istria, Rovinj, 31.5. and will last until 07.06., finishing in Zagreb. Eight days of driv-ing on the 1300 km long route through amazing  landscapes, 5 islands and 6 na-tional parks with plenty of attractions on the route officially called “Green electric route” that offers charging stations that are, in cooperation with our partners, set on the most significant locations. During the rally, the vehicles will be charged at the public charging stations with Tesla Superchargers and mobile DC chargers coupled with the mobile battery pack 1+1 MWh.

    The stopping points of this electric adventure are Poreč, Rovinj, Hum, Kringa, Beram, Vodnjan, Pula, Brijuni, Opatija, Senj, Krk, Cres, Lošinj, Pag, Paklenica, Zadar (The Greeting to the Sun and Sea Organ), Šibenik, Krka, Vransko Jezero, Split, Smiljan, Plitvička Jezera and Zagreb. The choice of these locations is not random; its aim is to show the best of what Croatia has to offer.

    In Istria we're visiting Buzet, the city of truffles, Hum, the smallest town in the world, then Beram and the church with the amazing medieval fresco “Dance Macabre” and in Vodnjan the Istrian church of St. Blaž which contains the world's largest collection of completely preserved bodies of Christian saints.

    The official accreditation as well as the assignment of numbers and road books to competitors will be held in Poreč, where the rally officially begins. In Pula we'll be parked next to one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters in Europe and a boat will take us to the national park Brijuni, a vacation destination of numerous kings, presidents and celebrities.

    The drive goes through central Istria, also called mini Tuscany, all the way to the fabulous Opatija, the astonishing renaissance Monte Carlo of the Adriatic and to Senj, known for its famous Bora on whose sea-front one of the most beautiful Tesla Superchargers is located.

    The drive continues across the islands of Krk, Lošinj and Pag with amazing lunar landscapes, where numerous auto manufacturers filmed their advertisements. Then there is Lun, the oldest European olive grove where it's permitted to move only on foot or with an electric micro vehicles. An essential stopping point is the city of Zadar.

    Krka national park, with its wonderful waterfalls, is where the first hydroelectric power plant was built according to Tesla's designs. From there, on August 28th, 1895, one of the first flows of electrical current rushed toward the 14 km distant city of Šibenik. The city of Split is the location of charging with the Tesla Supercharger and the race will be held near the Poljud stadium.

    On the 400 km long road towards Zagreb there is a mandatory stop at the birth-place of Nikola Tesla, in Smiljan.

    Less than 200 km before reaching Zagreb, the visit to the Plitvice Lakes, one of the most beautiful national parks in the world with amazing lakes and waterfalls situated in an ancient forest. Our finish line is the main square Ban Jelačić in Zagreb at night, where the „speed race“ will be held the next day as well as the winner announcement ceremony.
