ElectriX, part of LV=, has teamed up with Ordnance Survey ahead of the summer holidays to launch a series of 250-mile road trips around Great Britain which can be driven on a single charge and help challenge common misconceptions around electric vehicles.
Members of the public can choose from four different mapped routes to download, covering the South East, North West, Wales or Scotland, all of which can be completed over the course of a weekend. The 250-mile routes highlight fun activities for all the family as well as scenic landmarks up and down the country, from the Scottish Highlands and the Pembrokeshire Coast to the Yorkshire Dales and the South Downs National Park. Each map comes with its very own itinerary, making it easy to get on the road and see the best sights Great Britain has to offer!
The project has launched as new research reveals that 60% of us weren’t aware that an electric car can travel for distances as long as 250 miles without needing to be charged, with adults thinking they can travel an average of just 169 miles in an EV before needing to stop.
Each map contains information on where you can find public charging points to ensure that you’re fully charged before you set off on your adventure.
