WHAT IS THE GREAT BRITISH EV RALLY?
Put simply, the Great British EV Rally (GBEVR) is a ‘demonstration’ of UK EV charging infrastructure, combined with clean and innovative vehicle technology. Sponsored by the UK’s leading leasing specialists, Lex Autolease, the idea is to demonstrate the roles that EVs can play in UK fleets… That no matter what the job, there is likely an EV available that can perform the task… Improving efficiency, saving money and, overall, helping reach net zero.
We plan on putting 20+ EVs on the road, in July, and set them off from John O’Groats, on a 5-day, 1400+ mile ‘e-Rally’, taking in many of the beautiful landmarks across the UK, but most importantly, showcasing the charging infrastructure at the same time.
The idea is to showcase the event across social media platforms, featuring pictures, video and LIVE broadcasts…
Each of the participating vehicles will carry branding on the bonnets and doors and the idea is that they will be driven by fleet professionals, key industry people, media and maybe even the odd celebrity or well-known face.
The ‘eRally’ will take in EV charge points, clean energy projects and iconic landmarks, at key locations (Checkpoints – CPs), over the 5 days. Participants will stop at each CP, take a picture (proof) and share it across the various social media platforms, using pre-defined #Hashtags, etc.
By the end of the week, the ‘eRally’ will have travelled the length of the UK and will have completed more than 1400 ‘e-Miles’!
