On Tuesday our Pedalling Culture Community Engagement and Champion Coordinator Nicky, visited the EV Experience Centre (EVEC) located in Crown Walk in the centre:mk.
Their aim is to provide completely free education about electric vehicles and offer Milton Keynes residents and visitors the chance to test drive a range of different electric cars on the market.
Nicky met with the ‘gurus’ there and had a test drive in one of the ‘artist wrapped’ electric cars, which were commissioned by the Pedalling Culture project. She was amazed at how easy it was to drive, just like an automatic, and how simple it was to charge.
The EVEC offer 20 minute test drives as well as week long vehicle loans from the EV Experience Centre. All you need is your driving licence and DVLA check code.
The Pedalling Culture project encourages MK residents and visitors to explore the culture and heritage MK has to offer, using all types of sustainable transport methods, whether that be by foot, bike or electric vehicles. Nicky is recruiting Pedalling Culture Volunteer Champions to help spread the word about the project. If you are passionate about culture, art and heritage in MK and about sustainable transport methods and feel you may have a small amount of time to volunteer, then please do contact Nicky for more info. If you live in or near Wolverton, the electric cars will be on display on the afternoon of July 14th outside the Agora.
