Team Tesla Powered by RWE (Saša Cvetojević and Oleg Maštruko) are going for Budapest - Bamako rally, largest amateur rally in the world with Tesla X fully electric car.
Main sponsor of the project is, quite fittingly, energy company RWE, Croatian branch of the innogy group, one of the leading energy companies in Europe. In Croatia, they are mostly known as electricity and gas providers.
The rally itself is challenging enough, but to go with the electric car makes it almost completely crazy. Check out the video, with the rough route shown.

A Promotor of e-mobility and new business models, he is the founder of the first Croatian startup incubator and a member of CRANE's (Croatian Business Angel Network) executive board.
