The EV Rally of Scotland (EVROS) is a demonstration of Scottish EV charging infrastructure, combined with clean and innovative vehicle technology. The idea is to show that EV use across Scotland, and the rest of the UK, is not just ‘for the odd occasion’… It can be a ‘daily occurrence’… ‘the norm’!
The EVROS taking part during COP26. On Monday electric vehicles set off from Glasgow on a 5-day, 1200+ mile ‘e-Tour of Scotland’, taking in many of the beautiful landmarks in the country, but most importantly, showcasing the charging infrastructure across the region at the same time.
By the end of the week, the EVROS will have taken in every corner of Scotland, including a Western Isle, and will have completed more than 1900 km (1200 miles).
Four Kia electric vehicles are tackling the 1,200-mile ‘e-tour’ of Scotland as part of @TheEVROS, including the new EV6 and best-selling e-Niro proving the viability of fully electric road trips!
