For most shoppers, it is a big mental undertaking to research and evaluate options before buying any car.
As electric cars (or electric vehicles or EVs) are relatively new innovations, shopping for them is even more complex than a traditional vehicle. Finding quality information can be tough and finding someone you trust to talk to without pressure to buy is even tougher.
Whirl makes early-stage EV shopping easy and accessible by matching willing EV owners with curious EV shoppers for a real-world, informative trial without any pressure to buy.
Whirl takes the complexity out of buying electric cars for little cost, accelerating the take up of electric vehicles, and enabling a faster transition to sustainable living.
Coming soon! We want you to be the first to know when we launch.
Dr Alina Dini is captivated by energy innovation and how it can build long term financial and climate resilience for people, businesses and communities.
Alina’s noteworthy accomplishments include launching Tesla’s $2B credit trading program and through her PhD research, apprising the Australian Government of the value of the purchase experience for early electric vehicle consumers. Her global experience advising governing bodies on sustainability, brokering multi-million dollar national energy programs with large corporations, and leading a team to introduce landmark policies, means she is adept at guiding businesses, governments and groups of individuals to incorporate seamlessly clean energy innovations in their daily operations.
Alina has been a BIG fan of electric vehicles (EVs) since driving her first Tesla in 2006 when she joined the company.
Alina runs her family's two EVs on rooftop solar, and through arranging hundreds of EV test drives for her friends, neighbours and peers, is personally responsible for countless EV sales.
