Fully Charged LIVE 2019 – what to expect
Fully Charged LIVE is back this summer, set to be better, bigger and busier than last year. An exhilarating festival full of electric vehicles and clean energy technology. After the first event being a huge success in 2018, they have decided to add an extra day this year! So Fully Charged LIVE is back this year for 3 days at the world-famous Silverstone circuit track on Friday 7th, Saturday 8th & Sunday 10th June. Tickets now on sale.
Fully Charged Show history
Now with nearly half a million Youtube subscribers, over 400 videos with over 50 million views. We can certainly say the Fully Charged Show has grown massively over the past year. The Youtube channel and recently added podcast that keeps everyone entertained while talking everything electric cars and clean energy, as well as raising a huge awareness and keeping everyone up to date on low carbon technology.
What to expect?
There will be around 100 exhibitors and over 100 electric vehicles on display. Limited test drive opportunities will be available over the weekend, so you could try out an electric vehicle you’re interested in.
Last year DriveElectric’s give away prize was a ‘Tesla Model S electric car for kids’, which went down a treat, and is still providing hours of fun for winner Rob and family. This year we plan to top that and will be giving away a real electric car for a year (See our DriveElectric for a year blog post for more details on this competition).
Over the weekend around 30 live talk sessions will be hosted by the Fully Charged show presenters Robert Llewellyn, Jonny Smith, Maddie Moate & Helen Czerski along with a panel of guests.
DriveElectric’s MD Mike will be on Friday’s talk panel for ‘Car Ownership, but not as you know it’ in the Giga theatre (15:30-16:00).
Robyn Hester, expert in all things EV from our sales team will also be part of Saturday’s talk panel on ‘How to choose an Electric Car’ in the Giga theatre (12:30-13:00).
