Test drive an EV at Brands Hatch this weekend

The British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) kicks off this weekend at Brands Hatch in Kent and, to mark this, we’ve partnered with EVOLUTION to bring its electric Motor Show to the racetrack for the 1st and 2nd April.


As well as the racing excitement, you’ll be able to take a closer look at the full line-up of Go Ultra Low cars, including fully electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen vehicles from the likes of BMW, Audi, Volkswagen and Hyundai. You’ll find out more about what it’s like to own an EV, including the costs-saving benefits, and we’ll be there all weekend to answer any of your electric motoring questions.


All of the vehicles there will be available for test drives on sections of the Brands Hatch track, so remember to bring your driving licence if you’d like to get behind the wheel of one of our EVs.


Although the Motor Show is free, you will need to have a ticket to the BTCC event in order to enter the venue. Find more information on how to book tickets on the Brands Hatch website.


If you can’t make it to Brands Hatch this weekend, you can still book a test drive with an electric car anytime through our car selector tool here.
