Frequently asked questions
How does someone become a Whirl Ambassador?
Whirl Ambassadors are self-nominated or invited to participate in the program by Whirl.
They are interviewed prior to formal invitation to ensure mutual fit. Upon being formally invited into the program, they are briefed on Whirl practices and will have committed to terms, aligned with our Whirl Community Guidelines.
What is a Whirl Ambassador?
Whirl Ambassadors are everyday electric car owners who share their experiences owning and operating an electric car with shoppers like you.
Over time, Whirl plans to expand the Ambassador program to include other clean energy technologies such as solar panels, battery storage, home energy monitoring, and other cost and energy saving retail offerings.
What do I get for being a Whirl Ambassador?
As a Whirl Ambassador, you are publicly recognised for your contribution to growing the clean energy economy.
Additionally, during our initial pilot of this program (now underway) Whirl’s Ambassadors are compensated for their time.
Over time, we expect Ambassadors to be rated, ranked and awarded for their contributions as well as remunerated with partner perks, such as discounted public electric car charging.

Whirl Ambassadors are expected to:
-Be located in Australia (to begin)

How long does the Ambassador Program last?
Establishing the Whirl Ambassador program is the first step for Whirl. Our pilot (Q3) is carefully designed to test the the viability of peer support to encourage consumers and accelerate clean technology sales. After a trial period, we will evaluate the Program for continuation.
