Partners

PREPARED FOR EVERY POSSIBILITY...

The success of EVROS will be largely down to the kind help and assistance of our Event Partners, both from an organisational point of view, as well as an engagement one too.

We are fortunate to have secured the support of the some of the largest names in their fields, to help us here. 

Planning & Execution
Thanks to the expertise of Zap-Map and ChargePlace Scotland, we have managed to plot a route that enables us to take in the iconic landmarks we want, coupled with charge points that will feature as Official Checkpoints. On top of that, we need to ensure that the charging is staggered, so we don’t have a queue, and at the same time ensure that those that are wise enough to be EV drivers already, have access to the charging infrastructure and that we are not getting greedy by hogging them all!

Live Progress
Innovative tracking technology will be fitted to the participating vehicles, so we can broadcast LIVE progress of the EVROS, online, as it progresses. We will beam it live through our own website, social media and across other platforms belonging to chosen Partners.

Roadside Assistance
Thanks to The AA, we will be able to cope with any issues that might occur. If it’s a technical fault on the vehicle, or simply a ‘flatty’, we have it covered. Armed with their portable on-board charger, anyone that strays off course and gets themselves into a ‘range anxiety’ situation (now there’s a phrase you rarely hear anymore!), no problem.

Navigation
Using their innovative mapping, Zap-Map will show the Rally route in the participating vehicles, using on-board Carplay and Android Auto.

Event Logistics & Support
Ensuring that the Checkpoints are fully functional and branded, our Logistics Crew will get around ahead and behind the Rally, thanks to the use of innovative eDeliver 3 electric vans, kindly supplied by Maxus UK.

Let's make this eventful

While we expect to make the news, on TV AND Radio, our reach on social media platforms will drive the interest in this, and our PARTNERS are key to us achieving this, as well as the smooth running of the event too. Here is a summary of the MINIMUM we can expect, if we’re CLEVER enough…

INSTAGRAM

Vehicle manufacturers lead the way in the UK, on Insta and we can expect 300-400K across the participating VMs… Add the bank, energy and charging companies, and we’re looking at an additional 30K+

WORLD RECORD HOLDERS

We are delighted to confirm that no less that 3 of the drivers of the Rally are Guinness World Record Holders, in various ‘eco-driving categories. Their videos can be seen online.!

TWITTER

Vehicle manufacturers in the UK, on average, have 60K followers… there will be 3 or 4 of them involved (180K)… An ‘Energy’ specialist will add 34K… A ‘Bank’, a further 130K… 2 x charging point specialists gets us 20K and the Roadside Assistance partner 35K. Add the power of The Herald, as the Official Media Partner, and there’s 116K from that news source alone. Between us all, we will be reaching around half a million followers with every Tweet!

LINKEDIN

To attract the innovators in the business world, we will be making use of the LinkedIn platform to engage. Daily updates will ensure the narrative is constant, with a mix of engaging imagery and announcements.

DRIVER LEAGUE TABLE...

We are delighted to have secured the involvement of DriveTech as the Official Driver Training Partner for the event, supported by Tracking & Technology Partner, Webfleet Solutions.

Over the 5 days, ‘EV KEITH’ will set the standard for everyone else to beat, or match. With decades of experience under his race-suit belt, and using his innovative VW ID.3, he will demonstrate how ‘driver style’ affects the performance of an EV, in the same way it does on an ICE vehicle. 

Using technology fitted and monitored by Webfleet Solutions, we will measure harsh acceleration, braking, cornering, and coupled with temperature and terrain, etc. will be able to demonstrate the energy use of each vehicle.=

EV KEITH will also be offering daily advice to fleet professionals, that use an EV everyday, on how to get the best out of their electric company vehicle

THE START...

Thanks to our Launch Partner, Arnold Clark, EVROS sets off in a blaze of glory from their stunning EV Innovation Centre, a stones throw from the COP26 site, just down the road.

This is why they are the perfect Launch Partner to host the Start of EVROS as we set off on a truly epic adventure.

Everyone will likely be excited… We truly cannot wait. It’s going to be a truly unbeliEVable achiEVement!
