Winter EVs

The Tesla Club of Finland is organizing a club meeting from April 4 – 7th in the Finnish ski resort of Levi. Levi is located over 100km north of the arctic circle, so while April in Paris may have chestnuts in bloom, Levi is April is still blanketed in deep winter snow.

About EV Drive-Ins

Fortum Charge & Drive has been organising electric vehicle drive-ins since 2018. The popularity of the events has been a delight, as the active community of EV drivers and enthusiasts gather to share an evening together. The films are shown from a LED display rigged to a truck, and the audio is broadcast on a radio frequency that the vehicles tune into. In the middle of winter, electric cars can leaven their “engines running” to heat the cabin, without any worry of smoggy emissions or the disturbance of engine noise!
