Motoring Research - Silverstone prepares for Britain’s biggest-ever EV show

"There will be a number of live sessions, presented by Llewellyn and fellow TV colleagues Jonny Smith (Fifth Gear) and Helen Czerski (From Ice to Fire). The idea is to educate visitors about the electric car scene, with sessions including ‘introduction to owning an electric vehicle’ and ‘generating your own heat and power at home’."

I'm still considering making the trip with my Think...
Not sure about the recharge possibilities though somewhere halfway Harwich - Silverstone.
I hope you can make it... just think carefully about the ability of the UK network to charge *lots* of EVs at the same time :)

"So many people to thank, so many people to remember meeting, so many conversations, handshakes and yes, selfies. So much to see, to hear about, to think about. So much enthusiasm and energy. And clearly, judging by all the comments, tweets and anecdotal evidence, an incredibly friendly gathering."

Electric Vehicle Association Scotland - FULLY CHARGED LIVE 2018

"The number of EVs in the visitor car park took many people by surprise, offering a glimpse of what a typical car park will look like in Scotland in five years’ time (or in Norway today). However, in a surprise twist, when one of the panelists asked how many people in the audience didn’t own an EV, the vast majority raised their hands. It quickly became clear that this event was no EV enthusiast backslapping exercise, and that the #BringAPetrolHead social media campaign had paid off in full. Here were a large number of EV novices, keen to learn more before taking the plunge and no doubt some die-hard sceptics whose opinions may yet be changed. The atmosphere throughout the weekend was absolutely buzzing, and many excellent points were raised about the unparalleled economics and practicality of driving electric. It is fair to say that an overwhelming majority of the audience will now be on the hunt for their own EV after what transpired to be a highly informative and enjoyable fact filled event."

Re: UK - Fully Charged Live 9-10th June 2018

Looks like I really missed something.
Looking forward to being there in 2019! Hope the dates will be announced soon.
Ideally I’d like to come over with my converted Volvo Amazon wagon, hope it is ready by then.

I decided the last moment not to go because of the uncertainty of getting charged on the trip back and forth. More planning and using a campsite overnight had been a solution but I couldnt get it arranged on short term.
Next time when theres a bit more time i'll be there.


Instead I went to a Dutch EV event organized by the Classic Car Park in Boxtel (near Eindhoven) but apart from a few Tesla's (for rent) I was the only EV 'thinkerer' present, well at least with two cars :)
