WHY AN EV RALLY?

To ‘bury the idea’ that EVs are slow… That they don’t go very far… Are far too expensive… To run and to purchase… That the charging infrastructure isn’t in place!

As climate change experts descend upon Glasgow to debate the future of our planet and the strategies required to instigate a shift in direction, the UK needs to show why it is leading the world in embracing the very latest in innovative practices.

‘E-Mobility’ and the decarbonisation of transport is seen as a key element to helping the shift towards a cleaner future, and when it comes to EVs and infrastructure, the EV RALLY Of SCOTLAND (EVROS) and the participating sponsors aim to demonstrate that the UK is leading the way. 

The EVROS will not only show what is possible in the future… it will show that e-Mobility is here NOW!

Being such a high profile 12 days in Glasgow, the UK Government will show the rest of the world why we’re leading the way in e-Mobility. By showcasing Chargeplace Scotland to the masses, EVROS will PROVE that getting from A to B, across some of the most testing, and beautiful, terrain in Europe is not a barrier.

The modern tourist often looks at ‘the environment’ they are travelling to. Scotland is keen to show itself off as a clean and healthy country, with many iconic landmarks labelled ‘areas of outstanding natural beauty’. EVROS will showcase many of these places, over the 5 days.

As the ‘Host’ of COP26, Glasgow will be the Start & Finish of EVROS, and we will showcase ChargePlace Glasgow as we re-enter the city on the home-straight, on Day 5.

By staging a highly-interactive event, that will engage with hundreds-of-thousands of people, across multiple social media platforms, we truly think that EVROS will become a major talking point throughout the COP26 period.

All-in-all, EVROS is set to be something truly UnbeliEVable!
