LONDON – Marc 25, 2023: Electric cars across Cornwall recently hit the roads and ventured across the South West to take part in one of the country’s first ever electric car rallies.

Over 40 ‘green’ vehicles assembled at Truro’s Lemon Quay and made their way across the county, passing by Trelissick Gardens and boarding the iconic King Harry Ferry, before finishing up the 26 mile circuit at the Cornwall Hotel in St Austell.

The event helped raise the awareness of electric vehicles in Cornwall and was organised by Hawkins Motors, which has Peugeot Dealerships in Hayle, Penryn and St. Austell, and supported by Ecodrive, one of the UK’s leading independent advisors on electric vehicle infrastructure.

Johnny Hawkins, Director of Hawkins Motors, said: “The event demonstrated a real passion for electric motors throughout the county. This first event brought together environmentally friendly car owners and enthusiasts and helped to raise the profile and change people’s perspectives when it comes to alternative travel.

“With commitment from the Government to cover up to 75 per cent of the cost of installing charging points for electric vehicles in garages and driveways, the UK is set to become global leaders for low-carbon motoring, and Cornwall is certainly ahead of the game.”
