- RAA EV Drive Experience
Considering an electric vehicle?
Thanks to RAA and Eagers Automotive, for the first time in South Australia you can test drive up to 10 electric vehicles in one location as part of the 2023 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.
Learn about the latest models before you get behind the wheel and experience the vehicles shaping our transport future. The Eagers Automotive team of experts will be available to answer all your questions and help you prepare for an electric future.
The RAA marquee will have a team of experts on hand to talk to you about EV charging at home and out on the road, and how to prepare for an electric future with advice on installing solar and battery solutions for your home.
Join us at the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge Village in Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga between Friday 27th October 2023 and Sunday 29th October 2023 for the RAA EV Drive Experience.
Mark your calendars and book your test drive today, before they all book out.
