    I've got the interest and the funds but time could be a problem. Would there be anyone interested and available to attend this Auburn Hills event?

    For me, it is 698 miles, 14 hours, 10 min, driving with 7 stops and overnight at a Marriott. I would have to bring wife and her dogs or arrange for a house sitter.

    I would like to attend too. For me it is 14,711Km or 9,140Mi at around 15 days and an ocean crossing each direction (anyone know how to make an EV float).

    I've got it mapped out:
    [​IMG]
    • Conference fee, $200
    • Leave Thursday 6-7 AM, arrive 8:30-9:30 PM (13h 32m)
    • 696 mi expected cost $40 each way based on previous trips (*), $80 total
    • SuperCharger stops, charging time, and arrival
      • Bowling Green, 30 min
      • Louisville, 30 min
      • Cincinnati, 30 min
      • Lima, 30 min
      • Toledo, 30 min
      • arrive Auburn Hills
    • car rental and parking, $0
    • hotel room $75
    • AutoPilot is my co-pilot
    • return Friday evening
      • Tesla napping at the chargers
      • arrive home Saturday morning
    This approach is CHEAP compared to the least expensive airfare. It is also GOOD because I get to take what I want, flexible schedule, and eat where I want. Best of all, I avoid the purgatory of TSA, airports, and airliners.

    * - Trips to Dallas and Coffeyville came in at $30-40 each way. Likely to see only $80 total charging fees.

    Definitely sounds like fun (especially avoiding the flights).
    Hopefully you'll report back here what you learned.:D
    Or will they want a non-disclosure agreement?

    Calling all automotive engineers looking for objective technical information about today’s leading electric vehicles (EVs). Munro & Associates, world leaders in the Lean Design® methodology, teardown benchmarking and design optimization, is hosting an Electric Vehicle Technical Briefing on Friday, June 21 at its world headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich. During the event, the Munro team will present an engineering comparison of four leading EVs: the Tesla Model 3; the BMW i3, the Chevy Bolt; and the Jaguar I-PACE.

    The tour of the Munro Benchmarking Investigation, Innovation & Implementation Center will provide an Engineering deep dive of the most advanced electric vehicles and technologies in the market today. Munro will also provide an in-depth view into how you can analyze products and perform your own reengineering.

    The main focus will be on the EV “Big 3” Motors, Batteries and Electronics; however, there will be a new technology review with insight into the engineering and designs of some of the other innovative vehicles on the road today. The Tesla 3 will be compared to the BMW i3 and the Chevy Bolt.

    Unlike many “Power Point Conferences” the parts of all three of the vehicles will be laid out on tables and Munro “A Frames” with knowledgeable Munro Engineers to provide a detailed description of the key take-ways from each part of the car and answer questions.

    For the Jaguar I-PACE, there will be a hoist review to discuss the I-PACE and its electric motor.

    EXTRA! Munro has also invited an independent investigator from Tesloop who will share important aspects of EVs that are rarely discussed; life expectancy and maintenance of an EV. Tesloop has ALL the documentation on the durability of the Tesla product.

    This is a must attend event for all EV Engineers!
    $199 which includes:

    • An overview of: motors, batteries, and electronics the “EV Big 3”
    • A technology review with insight into the engineering and designs of some of the other innovative vehicles on the road today
    • A tour of Munro’s Benchmarking Investigation, Innovation & Implementation Center
