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 will put 50 x electric cars and vans on the road in July, setting them off from the Royal House, Castle & Gardens of Mey, before they swing by John O’Groats and embark on a 5-day, 1200+ mile ‘e-Rally’. Along the way, they will be taking in many of the beautiful landmarks across the UK, but most importantly, showcasing the charging infrastructure at the same time. We will finish in Land’s End on Friday 08 July.
The event will come to life across social media platforms, featuring pictures, video and LIVE broadcasts…
Each of the participating vehicles will carry eye-catching branding and they will be driven by fleet professionals, key industry people, media and even 3 x Guinness World Record Holders.
The GB EV Rally will feature Teams comprising many of the biggest names in UK industry – See here to find out who is taking part. Drivers will stop at each Checkpoint, take a picture (proof) and share it across the various social media platforms, using pre-defined #Hashtags, etc. You can follow progress on LinkedIn and Twitter, as well as on here.
By the end of the week, the GB EV Rally will have travelled the length of the UK and will have completed more than 1200 ‘e-Miles’… UnbeliEVable!
