Sharing is caring!

Europcar Mobility Group UK has been chosen as the Official Mobility Partner for the 2024 London to Brighton EV Rally taking place on 22nd June.  With the challenge to use as little energy as possible, the rally will see more than 100 electric vehicles – including a team of Europcar employees in branded EVs – travel approximately 60 miles from central London to Madeira Drive in Brighton.

As the official Mobility Partner, Europcar is offering a 20% discount on EV rental for anyone who wants to put electric motoring to the test in the rally, starting from any date from 17th to 22nd June for up to 7 days. The Tesla Model 3, MG4, and several Mercedes-Benz EQ models can all be rented from locations around the UK. Europcar is also offering 10 free places on the rally on a first come, first served basis.

“We are excited to be involved in this inspirational and fun event, showcasing the latest EV technology and adding a touch of competition to greener driving,” commented Sarah Clarke, Consumer Marketing Manager, Europcar Mobility Group UK.

“Our teams are really looking forward to taking part in the rally itself, as well as meeting other participants during the afternoon and evening events. The drive from London to Brighton will be an excellent opportunity to show the ease with which the latest electric cars can perform and will be a great opportunity for drivers who may have previously disregarded zero emissions options to discover everything about electric motoring in real-world conditions. 60 miles is well within the range of most electric cars, and we expect many rally participants to take the return journey too without having to stop to charge.”

Once participants cross the finish line, they will share energy consumption data before enjoying activities on Brighton Seafront including test drives of the latest EVs and a micro-mobility stunt show. Drivers will also be invited to visit the Europcar Lounge, where they can find out more about the Europcar low and zero emissions fleet while enjoying complimentary refreshments.

In the evening, an awards ceremony will recognise the most energy efficient drivers and vehicles on the journey from London to Brighton.
