Glasgow City Council
On the back of significant progress made on the City’s electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, the introduction of the Low Emission Zone and the ever expanding network of ‘Next bikes’, Glasgow City Council are pleased to be hosting the GREENFLEET and EVOLUTION events on Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th respectively.
This is a great opportunity for commercial operators and members of the public alike to gain more understanding of electric vehicles (EVs) and the associated charging infrastructure.
With many vehicle manufacturers committing to cease the production of petrol and diesel engine vehicles in the near future and the Scottish Government’s commitment to phase out said vehicles by 2032, there has never been a better time to consider an EV for your next car.
Most of the major vehicle and charge point manufacturers will be on hand to introduce the latest vehicles, offer test drives and explain how EVs can benefit.
As well as EVs and ebikes, there will be plenty to do for all the family including a bouncy castle and miniature racing track.
Glasgow City Council offers free electric vehicle charging at a network of plugged in places around the city, operating over 80 charging outlets throughout Glasgow.
The most recent installed at Duke Street car park, Sauchiehall Street, Ashton Road car park, Great Western Road and South Portland Street. The charging outlets are located on-street within the city centre, Commonwealth games venues, sport and leisure venues, multi-storey car parks, museums and entertainment venues.
The council has received grants from Transport Scotland to subsidise the installation of these electric vehicle charging points.
