On June 6th, the Telsa Club in Finland organised an EV road-trip around the scenic archipelago. The tour kicked off at the Electricity Museum in Paimio, where Fortum Charge & Drive offered coffee and ice-cream, as well as a tour of the museum, which is also sponsored by Fortum.

A band of EVs (Teslas in particular) make quite a sensation wherever they go, and the local interest in EVs, Teslas, and e-mobilities was delightful! One of the highlights of the trip was the ferry from Parainen to Nauvo - the ferry, Finnferries'  Elektra, is not only Finland's largest ferry road, it's also the first ferry that can be run 100% on electricity! 

The combination of Finland's largest electric ferry with a full load of EVs also broke the Finnish national news, with MTV3 reporting on the awesome event
