From plug-in hybrids to zero-emission electric and hydrogen cars, Go Ultra Low will present the very latest ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) at the Regent Street Motor Show this Saturday (31 October). Visitors can experience some of the lowest emitting, most fuel-efficient models available today and discover for themselves why demand for these vehicles has never been so high.
In a first for the Regent Street Motor Show, the Go Ultra Low stand will display the newest plug-in cars that produce less than 75g/km of CO2, including a first UK public viewing for the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Toyota’s new hydrogen-powered Mirai. The eye-catching BMW i8 sports car will also be on show, alongside the popular Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE and the latest Toyota Prius Plug-in.
The line-up represents the wide variety of electrically-powered cars currently available, ranging from family run-arounds to high-performance sports cars and 4x4s. With 27 pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars now on sale, demand in the UK has never been higher – 20,992 motorists made the leap to plug-in power between January and September this year, a surge of 138.5% against 2014.
Visitors to the show will also have the opportunity to test drive some of the cars on a nearby street circuit. A valid driving licence will enable drivers over the age of 21 to access a selection of plug-in cars and experience the thrill of electric driving first-hand. Also joining the Go Ultra Low display line-up is the latest in clean public transport, as Transport for London presents its latest electric bus, alongside a classic Routemaster double-decker.
