Guest Post- '2,500 mile Electric Car Road Trip through UK & Ireland'


Read about the most recent EV adventure from Jess Shanahan and her 'Route 57' journey on EV Motion Guest Blog: 

"On 6th April 2016 JessShanahan set out from Plymouth on a 20 day journey across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland – finishing in Galway on 26th April.

The road trip, named Route 57 forits 57 ‘must see’ destinations along the way, included stops incities, villages, forests, and national parks – documenting the journey with photos and video.

The route was designed by JurysInn Hotels, and driven in a Kia Soul EV supplied by DriveElectric, using electric car charging points (mapped out by ZapMap). The electric car saw the capital cities of four countries, was welcomed by 17 town and city mayors, stopped at motor museums, iconic landmarks, and drove through scenic landscapes including Dartmoor, the Brecon Beacons, the Lake District, The Cairngorms, Wicklow Mountains and more.
