Hackett Pumps Funds Into Tesla Chauffeur-Driven Service

Technology investor – and keen Tesla electric car fan – Simon Hackett has purchased a 10 percent shareholding in Evoke, a company which operates a chauffeur service using Teslas.

Evoke founder Pia Peterson said Hackett’s investment made it easier for the company to finance its fleet expansion, with plans to move into Melbourne with three cars by the middle of year.
