A Government funded electric vehicle public awareness campaign has been launched by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).
The campaign is part of a wider public engagement programme, which the SEAI will lead. The first phase of the campaign will allow drivers to compare almost 40 different electric vehicles available today, arrange for a test drive at their local dealer and find out more about driving electric, all at a single website www.DrivingElectric.ie.
The accompanying advertising campaign will highlight how electric vehicles are compatible with virtually everyone’s daily lives. Later this year, more electric vehicle roadshows will be rolled out nationwide, encouraging people to test-drive an electric car.
The launch was warmly welcomed at the SEAI Energy Show in the RDS where over 5,000 people will gather today and tomorrow to exchange ideas and listen to innovative developments that are set to transform how Ireland makes and consumes energy in the years ahead.
