About the Global Green Challenge and the Internode Tesla Roadster

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009 by

The Global Green Challenge runs over the last week of October 2009 and this year in the ‘Eco Challenge’ Internode is running the only Tesla Roadster pure electric vehicle in the event, driving it from Darwin to Adelaide.

What is the Global Green Challenge, and what sort of car is the Tesla Roadster – and why can you make your next car electric?

To provide lots of background information about these very questions, please listen to (or read the transcript of) an interview recorded from ABC 891 radio in Adelaide on 19th October.
