In light of COP26 the importance of showcasing the Scottish EV charging infrastructure to the world is critical. This week sees the start of the EV Rally of Scotland (#EVROS). The event will see drivers of 4 teams cover 1200 miles across a 5 day event. The route will take the teams to 30 checkpoints across some of Scotland’s past and present key landmarks including the Arnold Clark Innovation Centre, The Kelpies, Tongue Causeway, John O’Groats and MSIP Dundee to name a few.
The drivers will be looking to bust the myth that the infrastructure is not in place to allow for cross country travel, whilst also demonstrating the clean and pioneering technology that is readily accessible country wide.
ChargePlace Scotland is the official charging and innovation network supplier for the rally and will be driving as part of #teamKia in the spacious Kia Niro.
Represented by our very own Operational Network Manager for Scotland, Bob Murphy. Bob is the key contact point for the 32 local authorities across Scotland and all other charge point owners regarding tariffs and changes on the network of over 2100 chargers. You can follow Bob as he adventures out into the early Scottish winter Highland roads and beyond across our social media channels. @ChargePlaceScot on Twitter and ChargePlace Scotland on Facebook.
