Did you hear about the time Elon Musk’s mum took part in a electric car race driving a Tesla? Not many have (That Time Elon Musk’s Mum Maye Came on the Nikola Tesla EV Rally in Croatia).

Or that time when a Jadrolinija ferry was 100% occupied by electric cars, an image which was shared on social media by Musk’s Tesla company?


Or the time that Croatia’s own electric car genius, Mate Rimac, took part in speed tests on the same rally in his Concept_One?


One of the very best events in Croatia is underway for a ninth year, the Nikola Tesla EV Rally 2022, which kicked off in Istria, and which will be making its way down the coast to Zadar over the next week. More than 60 electric vehicles, predominantly Teslas, will be taking part in the quietest race in the world.
