Oxford Electric Vehicle Show

15 June 2019 | 10am – 5pm
Broad Street, Oxford 

The event will showcase a wide selection of electric cars, vans, e-bikes & mopeds, together with associated services like charging, servicing and financing. Also existing owners of electric vehicles will be on hand to share their experiences and answer your questions.

The electrification of our mobility is now a hot topic as we transition away from burning fossil fuels (which are polluting our air, damaging our health and our planet) to cleaner, greener, zero emission vehicles. The UK Government has banned new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2040, but there’s growing pressure to bring this forward to 2032. Oxford has set a target to have zero emission transport in the City by 2030 with a Zero Emission Zone, with a gradual roll out starting in 2020.

Electric vehicles have been available in the UK for over 9 years now. All the manufacturers are racing to electrify all their models and the choices improves each year. At the 2019 Oxford Electric Vehicle Show, we hope to have the majority of the current available models on show, with both the local dealerships and existing owners on hand to answer your questions.

Oxford Electric Vehicle Show is organised by Go Green Autos, Oxford City Council, and Oxfordshire Greentech
