ELECTRIC vehicles will be plugging in at The British Motor Museum on Saturday.
The Gaydon museum hosts the Electric Vehicles Festival. The show, which began in 2019, will give visitors the opportunity to see hundreds of electric vehicles on display. All Fully Pure Electrics (BEV) are welcome to join the show for a celebration and display their vehicles including electric cars, e-commercials, e-bikes, e-buses and e-coaches.
Exhibits will include a Harley Davidson Live Wire Electric MotorCycle and a Citroen AMI which is only making its second UK public appearance.
The Ardingly Ifield Solar Challenge Team will be at the festival as part of their tour from John ‘o’ Groats to Brighton along with the Cambridge University Solar Challenge Team. MG Motors UK will be showcasing their facelift MG5 and MG-ZS EV that made its second UK appearance at the festival in 2019.
There will also be an electric boat ‘Silent Adventure’ and Tommy Tesla. Eco-Classics, an electric vehicle conversion company, will be bringing along something new and Streetbikes will be showcasing its Zero Electric Motorcycles.
And #EV Twizy Park will be making a comeback celebrating the Renault Twizy.
For the first time the festival will incorporate a mini arena with presentations provided by Octopus Electric Vehicles throughout the day.
The festival is also the perfect place for those thinking about going electric. There will be an array of different makes and models on display as well as the opportunity to talk to the owners and find out what convinced them to take the plunge and go electric.
Jeff Coope, managing director at the British Motor Museum said: “The future of Electric Vehicles (EV) and events such as this is very important to the museum and the evolution of EV technology is an important story for us to tell.
“We have already invested in ten electric charging points for visitors and event organisers to use, with the infrastructure to support more. This has attracted public events such as the EV festival but also corporate EV events and product launches for many of the large motoring manufacturers. This is only the start of our EV journey.”
