Day 14: Brno and Ilhava

Today, another sunny day, was nice for driving around the Czech Republic. In Brno, the WAVE was officially welcomed by the city mayor, and representatives of the Brno Technical University. Jan Vejbor, E-mobility Project Manager at TILI helped ensure the  WAVE ran smoothly, and even translated the teams’ introduction of the vehicles to the public. Meanwhile, the cars got charging from proper EV charging stations especially set up for the WAVE. In Brno, we also tested which WAVE vehicles had the fastest acceleration along a short distance (60 m), and the winner was Zerotracer.

Late afternoon in the town of Jihlava, the WAVE was welcomed by the city mayor and the vehicles were once again displayed to the public for a couple of hours. Tonight was the last evening together, so each of us shared something with the group about our personal experiences during the WAVE.  It was evident that everyone had a lot of fun, although at this point a brake and some extra sleep would be much appreciated!
