Interview with Ing. Bernd Donner – Club Manager Tesla Club Austria

1. Can you provide an overview of the Tesla Club Austria and its role in organizing the Tesla Takeover in Flachau?

Tesla Club Austria is the main organizing force behind the Tesla Takeover Europe. We visited the Tesla Takeover in California and helped with some organization there (especially the Cybertruck Lightshow). We did a lot of great events in the past so we have a great experienced team to cope with all the challenges that such an event brings.

2. What are some of the key highlights and events planned for the Tesla Takeover in Flachau?

The absolute highlight are the people that are coming. That’s what we realized during our journey organizing the biggest Tesla community festival. The feedback is amazing and seeing all those countries coming together feels very special. Our goal is to have as much fun as possible, but of course fulfilling as much different needs of Tesla people and interested non Tesla owners as possible. There will be keynotes from interesting speakers, tech workshops, a modded car area and fun stuff for kids, action attractions for adults and a great party in an awesome location. One of the highest priorities are to bring a Cybertruck to the event so we found a solution to own one ourself and try to bring it as fast as possible to Europe.

3. How does the Tesla Club Austria collaborate with other international Tesla clubs to make events like the Tesla Takeover in Flachau a success?

We have very good relations and friendships to clubs all over Europe. They help us promoting the event and support with sponsorship contacts and their experiences. Tesla Owners Silicon Valley are the founders of Tesla Takeover events, so we work with them the closest.

4. What kind of workshops and presentations can attendees expect at the Tesla Takeover in Flachau, specifically focusing on the latest developments in sustainable technologies?

We have some great experts for different topics like Lifestyle, Tech, Tuning,…. Sustainability is a big topic for us so we give away a free keynote session and sponsor package for a sustainable startup called Rethink Clothing. We partner with them for our merchandise because the textile industry takes a big part of CO2 pollution. Giga Berlin and it’s recent riots will be a topic. We want to show how green it really is. Besides that we talk about Tesla related topics like FSD, robotics, AI and of course Cybertruck.

5. How does the Tesla Club Austria envision the future of electric vehicles in Europe and what role do events like the Tesla Takeover play in promoting this vision?

We experience that every event we organize leaves an impact on the local people. People talk about it and can experience it first hand. We try to bring people to the event who didn‘t drive a Tesla or an electric vehicle yet. Tesla Austria will be there providing test drives for the local community. Besides that in these times of so much uncertainties and crisis it is important to strengthen the community and giving people the chance to meet friends and find new ones across the globe. We have visitors from America and Asia joining so it will be a great opportunity to learn from eachother and have a good time. That‘s what we all deserve right now.
