Evolution Scotland EV motor show

Should have posted this a bit sooner! #-o But I thought I'd share it in case any of you are interested in seeing some EV's...

I'm planning to go to "Evolution Scotland" this Saturday (6th May) which is a car show dedicated to EV's, which includes being able to test drive EV's from various manufacturers that will be there. (Yes even Tesla :) ) It runs from 9:30 to 4:30. I'm not affiliated with the show in any way, just someone planning to go! :)

It's located at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh - just next to Edinburgh airport. Registration and entry is free online. To be able to drive any cars on the day you have to register and provide drivers license details, but that only took me a few minutes to do online.

Should be an interesting day out (I haven't been before) so anyone in the central Scotland area that is curious to see and possibly drive some EV's might find it a worthwhile day. :)

It was a good day out, the little boy enjoyed running around like a lunatic, I had to keep reeling him back in. It would have been even better if we'd arrived a bit earlier and I'd had the courage to get myself a test drive in a Tesla... :twisted: I had all the paperwork to do test drives filled out and handed over but I chickened out! :(

Next year! By then they should have a Model 3 to drive as well, and there will also be the next gen Leaf and who knows what other new models...
