RAC supports Fully Charged LIVE electric vehicles event
The world's biggest ever festival of electric vehicles and clean energy returns to Farnborough International from the 29th April to 1st May 2022, and the RAC is pleased to be returning to sponsor the Test Drive event.

Fully Charged LIVE brings the popular YouTube show to life by showcasing every commercially available electric car on the market, many of which drivers can try themselves in the RAC-sponsored test drive programme.

While Tesla's Model 3  was the top selling EV in 2021, there are some other incredible cars now on offer, including Hyundai's Ioniq 5KIA's EV6, the Polestar 2Volkwagen’s ID.3 and ID.4 amongst many others. There will also be a focus on new electric cars that are due out soon, as well as some concepts and prototypes that are likely to be the future of transport. The show even offers an incredible selection of classic cars that have been converted to electric, as well as a rarely seen electric car from 1906.

Visitors to Fully Charged LIVE will have the chance to ask all the questions they have about running electric cars and will be able to discuss all the charging options available, both at home and away from home. In addition, there are two theatres packed with useful information for beginners, including sessions on understanding running costs, EV myth-busting and deeper dives into how batteries are being recycled, and where the materials that make them come from.

Other forms of electrified transport will also be on show. From electric monowheels to skateboards, from scooters to bikes and trikes, and from mopeds to motorbikes, visitors will be spoilt for choice at Fully Charged LIVE.

At the other end of the spectrum, electrification is coming in for serious consideration for larger vehicles. To that end, lots of commercial electric vehicles, especially coaches, buses, trucks and vans, will be showcased to give businesses an understanding of how they can benefit from the cleaner, greener options coming to market.

Another important focus of Fully Charged LIVE is cleaner technologies for the home. Visitors will be able to learn about the latest in insulation, energy efficiency, smart thermostats, thermal storage, air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and the newest zero-emission heating technologies.

The RAC is working hard to help drivers make the switch to electric by offering market-leading EV leasing deals and making it easy to get a home charger installed. We'll be showcasing our brand new Electric Renault Zoe Van, the first EV Breakdown Patrol van in the UK, which is currently deployed and active in London and will be using their trial Maxus EV patrol van to provide all Fully Charged Live visitors with complimentary breakdown cover while they're on site.

Drivers will also have the chance to see the RAC’s unique EV Boost lightweight, van-mounted EV charging system and the pioneering All Wheels Up rapid recovering system which enables patrols to recover EVs safely with all four wheels off the road. Come and find us on stand R10!

Some tickets are still available, so if you're looking for something to do this bank holiday weekend, grab them quick.
