Free test drives of EVs available in Manchester today
Open until 7pm tonight (12 October) in Albert Square, Manchester city centre, the event – supported by Manchester City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) – is aimed at local residents and businesses as well as visitors and provides the chance to test-drive the newest electric cars on the market.
Visitors can also put their driving skills to the test in a Formula E electric street racing series simulator, with the opportunity for 20 motorists to win a Renault ZOE for the weekend.
The roadshow comes as Go Ultra Low announces continued record-breaking uptake for plug-in electric cars in the UK. New vehicle data reveals 12,932 electric cars were registered from July to September, a year-on-year rise of 36%, thanks to a best-ever September month for plug-in registrations as 7,794 EVs were new on UK roads – up 27% on September 2016.
