EV Rally

EVOLVING… FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF THE CAPITAL CITY CHALLENGE!

After the EV Rally arrived in Belfast in July ‘23, we formed the largest moving showcase of EVs ever assembled in Northern Ireland. Set against the backdrop of the iconic Titanic Belfast, on the Slipways, the teams arrived to spend a few hours engaging with Northern Irish businesses.

We then took on 2 mammoth days across NI and then into Ireland, visiting iconic landmarks, as well as clean energy projects, together with public charging hubs, on route, before reaching a climax at the HQ of our Logistics Partner, Harris Maxus, in Dublin.​

We will see Teams tackle the iconic Wild Atlantic Way! The west coast of Ireland features the world’s longest pre-defined coastal route and we will explore more than 1000 all-electric kilometres of it, across 2 days. We kick off in Donegal, overnight in Galway and then finish in Cork, having taken in public charging, iconic landmarks and examples of clean energy along the way.

Assisting the organisers will be Event Logistics Partner, Maxus, whose award-winning electric vans will be used to deploy event branding, flags and Checkpoint materials and staff. They will also use the Rally, as ‘Team Maxus’ to showcase their new to market E-Deliver 7 mid-size electric commercial vehicle, as well as GREENFLEET Vehicle of the Year for 2023 – the all-electric T90 Pick-Up.

Following the Teams will be our ‘Roadside Assistance Partner’, The AA & AA Ireland , whose ‘yellow comfort blanket’ will be warmed and ready should any of the Teams have any issues.

To assist with ensuring drivers actually make the best use of their batteries, we have our ‘Driver Training Partner’, Drivetech . They will address the teams and post across our Team channel, offering eco-driving tips, sprinkled with driver safety information, ensuring ‘range anxiety’ is merely a myth, and not a reality.

Progress will be broadcast online, thanks to our ‘Technology Partner’, Geotab . Their technicians will also analyse data taken from specialist devices fitted to participating vehicles, where we can calculate energy consumption and safe driving, as well as finer details including number of charge stops, location, charge time, and much more.

EV Rally

Showcasing charging infrastructure and more…

The route has been chosen to take teams far and wide, taking in areas with charging-a-plenty, as well as others where the infrastructure is not so readily available. Thanks to the social media power that comes from the EV Rally events, we will be able to highlight where government and local authorities need to focus their attention, if e-mobility is to become ‘the norm’.

Here’s what we have in store for those taking part, and those following progress online…
