Grab a Ride In the Tesla Model S

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 1 May ’16, 10:00am – 12:00pm


Warbirds & Wheels, 11 Lloyd Dunn Avenue, Wanaka


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Lucky locals in Wanaka will be able to grab a ride in the Tesla Model S car for the first time when it visits Warbirds & Wheels at Wanaka Airport on Sunday.

The world’s most awarded ‘green’ car will be available to grab a ride for a donation which will go towards Wanaka Primary School’s sustainability project which aims to make the school’s grounds more activity based and interactive.

Former South Canterbury farmer, Richard Macdonald is passionate about global sustainability in water use and zero emission cars and he is driving his privately owned Tesla S through the South Island to raise awareness of the future of energy efficient driving.

The car, electricity and Richard’s time are kindly donated, however Richard also wants to leave a sustainability legacy in Wanaka which is why he’s offering the Tesla rides for a donation to the school.

The donation for a five minute quick drive –maximum four people per trip- is $20 per person and will take place at Wanaka Airport.
