Go Ultra Low presents latest ULEVs
From plug-in hybrids to zero-emission electric and hydrogen cars, Go Ultra Low will present the very latest ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) at the Regent Street Motor Show this Saturday (31 October). Visitors can experience some of the lowest emitting, most fuel-efficient models available today and discover for themselves why demand for these vehicles has never been so high.
In a first for the Regent Street Motor Show, the Go Ultra Low stand will display the newest plug-in cars that produce less than 75g/km of CO2, including a first UK public viewing for the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Toyota’s new hydrogen-powered Mirai. The eye-catching BMW i8 sports car will also be on show, alongside the popular Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE and the latest Toyota Prius Plug-in.
Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low, said, ‘These ultra low emission vehicles don’t just represent the future of motoring, but are a compelling option right now. We are looking forward to showing visitors to the Regent Street Motor Show why increasing numbers of drivers are switching-on to the financial benefits, including fuel costs from just 2p-per-mile, and practicalities of owning and running an electric vehicle.’
The line-up represents the wide variety of electrically-powered cars currently available, ranging from family run-arounds to high-performance sports cars and 4x4s. With 27 pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars now on sale, demand in the UK has never been higher – 20,992 motorists made the leap to plug-in power between January and September this year, a surge of 138.5% against 2014.
Visitors to the show will also have the opportunity to test drive some of the cars on a nearby street circuit. A valid driving licence will enable drivers over the age of 21 to access a selection of plug-in cars and experience the thrill of electric driving first-hand. Also joining the Go Ultra Low display line-up is the latest in clean public transport, as Transport for London presents its latest electric bus, alongside a classic Routemaster double-decker.
Go Ultra Low representatives will be on hand to answer visitors’ questions about ultra-low emission vehicles, with information about electric vehicle charging and infrastructure provided by experts from charge point provider APT Technologies. A number of evolt charging posts will be on display, supporting the plug-in vehicles and demonstrating the ease with which they can be charged.
Justin Meyer, general manager for APT Technologies said, ‘We are delighted to be able to offer support to the Go Ultra Low campaign. This is a great opportunity to help spread the word and increase the number of low emission vehicles on the UK’s roads. Our Business Development Manager, Myles Barker, will be on hand on the day to answer questions and provide advice on charging EVs at home and in public.’
To celebrate its participation in the Regent Street Motor Show, Go Ultra Low is offering visitors to the stand and followers of @GoUltraLow on Twitter the chance to win a weekend away in an electric car, staying at a top eco-hotel. Details on how to enter will be revealed on the stand at the show and also on the @GoUltraLow Twitter channel.
