EV Rally 2023

July 5, 2023


Put simply, the EV Rally (EVR) is a ‘demonstration’ of UK and Irish EV charging infrastructure, combined with clean and innovative vehicle technology. Sponsored by the UK’s leading leasing specialists, Lex Autolease, the idea is to demonstrate the roles that EVs can play in UK and Irish fleets….That no matter what the job, there is likely an EV available that can perform the task……Improving efficiency, saving money and, overall, helping reach net zero.

We will put approx. 50 EVs on the road, in July, and set them off from Cardiff, where they will embark on a 5-day, 1200+ mile “e-Rally” taking in the other 4 capital cities. We will take in many of the beautiful landmarks across the UK and Ireland, but most importantly, showcase the charging infrastructure at the same time.

NEW FOR ‘23… Following the successful running of electric vans in 2022, we are now upping our game once more and will feature electric motorcycles and HGVs in the Rally, showcasing all 4 vehicle classes… Another ‘first’ for the EV Rally in the fleet sector!

Following the huge social media success of the GB EV Rally, the idea is to once again showcase the event across various platforms, featuring pictures, video and LIVE broadcasts…

Each of the participating vehicles will carry branding on the bonnets and doors and the idea is that they will be driven by fleet professionals, key industry people, media and maybe even the odd celebrity or well-known face.

The EV Rally will take in EV charge points and hubs, clean energy projects and iconic landmarks, at key locations (Checkpoints – CPs), over the 5 days. Participants will stop at each CP, take a picture (proof) and share it across the various social media platforms, using pre-defined #Hashtags, etc.

By the end of the week, the EV Rally will have travelled the length of the UK & Ireland and will have completed more than 1200 Miles!
