Event description
Bendigo Tech School and Jaunt Motors are transforming an iconic 1970s 4WD into a Tesla powered electric vehicle.

About this Event

Jaunt upcycles iconic four wheel drives into electric cars for adventure.

Australia has one of the lowest adoption rates of electric vehicles in the world, and one of the highest transport emissions per capita. Cars built for adventure dominate our culture and car sales, but this desire to explore can be a catalyst to transform Australia’s transport industry into something with a positive environmental and social impact.

Bendigo Tech School has partnered with Jaunt in this community enterprise in which Bendigo girls will convert a classic 3-door Range Rover to electric operation.

In this NGV Melbourne Design Week talk and factory tour, hear how we design and build a vehicle that challenges automotive conventions.

Ticket price includes a light lunch and meet and greet.
