V-Electric is proud to announce that we are the recipients of a science & technology grant from the Earle Creativity and Development Trust! The grant enables us to complete the Velopetta prototype, and will go toward development of the last remaining features of the vehicle, including the door, seat, and removable soft-top.
A huge thank you to Dick and Mary Earle, to the selection committee, and to everyone who made this grant possible.
About the trust
The Creativity and Development Trust was established by Richard and Mary Earle, and helps fund both arts and technical sciences projects within the Manawatu region of New Zealand.
We are very proud to announce that V-Electric was the supreme winner of the 2012 Manawatu Innovate awards last night! The Innovate awards are an annual local business innovation competition where competitors spend 10 weeks refining their business plans before pitching to a panel of judges, dragon’s den style.
