Dundee Gears up for Electric Vehicle Roadshow
Published on 1 March 2019
Swithering about investing in an electric car or bike, and wondering how they might fit into your life?
A family-friendly event is giving visitors the chance to test drive and experience the thrill of driving a variety of electric vehicles at Dundee Science Centre this weekend (Saturday 2 March 2019).
The EV Roadshow event, coordinated by Home Energy Scotland and Drive Dundee Electric, will offer a limited number of test drives of a range of vehicles including Tesla X, Tesla S, Jaguar ipace, Hyundai Ioniq, Hyundai Kona, Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe and BMW 530e. A number of electric bikes will also be available to try.
Visitors are advised to attend the event early to book a slot on the day.
There will also be the chance to enjoy some inspirational and entertaining activities inside Dundee Science Centre, and see shockingly spectacular demonstrations about electricity. Visitors can harness the power of lightning, use their body to complete a circuit, and power a clock with something they might not expect! There will also be family-friendly activities including Scalextric and a face painter.
The event will run from 10am until 4pm.
Matthew Eastwood, Head of Transport at Energy Saving Trust said, “Driving an EV compared to a petrol or diesel car could save hundreds of pounds every year. As well as lower running costs, ultra-low emission vehicles offer a smoother driving experience, are fun to drive and have reduced engine noise. There is a wide choice of electric vehicles on the market at different price points making them increasingly affordable.
“With longer ranges than ever before and interest-free loans available to help with purchase, there’s no better time to switch to an ultra-low emission vehicle.”
