The show will include a specially created green supercar section to shrug off the stigma that eco-friendly cars are slow and boring, though judging from our images the designers still miss the mark regarding aesthetic appeal…
The green supercar line-up will include:
Bluebird Electric – Fresh from its British Electric Land Speed Record attempt in South Wales.
Tesla Roadster – Though in a legal tussle with Top Gear, the Roadster will be on display as the first highway-capable battery car in production.
Delta Motorsport E-4 Coupe – Claims a driving range of 320km on a single charge.
Evelio – This superfast beast can allegedly rocket from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Other models on display will include the 522kW Lightning GT and the UK-built Nemisis electric sports car capable of 0-100km/h in seven seconds.
Giles Brown, EcoVelocity event director, said the aim of green supercars was to alter car-buyers’ perceptions. “The addition of the green supercar paddock might well be a little bit unexpected for some visitors,” he said, “but will definitely grab a lot of attention – which is the whole point, changing perceptions.
“We are here to educate people about eco-friendly motoring – it’s evolving all the time.”
The EcoVelocity show will also showcase the latest green models including electric, hybrid and low C02 emitting vehicles.
