UK - Fully Charged Live 9-10th June 2018

If you're interested in renewables or electric transport then this show is for you :D

"After 8 years following the developments of low-emission vehicles and renewable technologies, Fully Charged is going live at Silverstone!

Over 2 days, Fully Charged LIVE offers dozens of attractions, including every electric vehicle in the UK, an exhibition of relevant technologies, an Ask the Expert area, lots of live theatre sessions and almost everyone you've seen on the show will be attending in person."

I'm thinking on coming over with my 200km range Think PIV4 from The Netherlands :)

Would there be enough charging stations on route from Harwich to Silverstone ?

I can do charges of aprox 2 hours for every 150km driving.

You'll need to check the various charging maps/apps and make a decision for yourself... I rarely travel long distance by EV in the UK because I find the wait and reliability of 'rapid' charging unacceptable.

From the show FAQ;

"Can I charge my car at Silverstone?"

"NO. A significant percentage of Fully Charged Show fans have plug-in electric vehicles, so it is likely that with thousands of visitors expected at Fully Charged LIVE, that there will be hundreds if not thousands of electric vehicles on-site. In all likelihood this will make it the biggest ever convening of electric vehicles at a venue in the UK. There are few, if any venues in the UK that could cope with that level of power demand and as such we recommend that visitors make alternative charging arrangements en route. Naturally, we will be communicating options in advance of Fully Charged LIVE to make the show as accessible as is possible."

Another teaser ;)
It looks like there is a suspension... but it looks like trailing or semi-trailing arms. :( I hope that this and Damien's 8-series are not the beginning of a trend to a reversion to obsolete suspension design in order to fit in these Tesla drive units. :eek: Perhaps the final reality will be better. :)

Too bad I can鈥檛 make it. Would have loved to come over and see projects discussed hear in real life and meet people.
For those who will be there: Enjoy!
