UK: Electric cars to star at Lakes Hospitality Show

BUSINESS bosses heading to the major curtain raiser of the Lake District tourism season will get a chance to check out an electric car – and test drive one.

The bid to turn tourism on to e-cars and convert sceptics starts next month.

Five electric cars are being lined up to show to business people attending the Lakes Hospitality Show event at the Daffodil Hotel & Spa, Grasmere, on February 24-25.

The ‘ride and drive’ offer is from Cumbrian firm Solway Renewables, which has been leading the installation of e-charging points across the county.

Cumbria has been seen as a ‘black hole’ for e-cars due to a shortage of public places where users can plug-in then charge up their vehicles.

The Gazette reported last year that this leads to ‘battery anxiety’ – the fear batteries will run out.
