The team at the EV Experience Centre were honoured to receive a visit from the Mayor of Milton Keynes, David Hopkins, to discuss the uptake of electric vehicles as well as the charging infrastructure available. Visiting alongside Head of Transport Innovation at MK Council, Brian Matthews, they were greeted by Ted Foster, Centre Manager, who showed them around the electric vehicles and charge points on display in the Centre. 

The Mayor had the chance to meet some of the EV Gurus; and ask them some questions, before being shown our dedicated electric vehicle charging bays outside and some of the cars we have available for short-term and long-term test drives. He was also given a quick tutorial on how to use a POLAR Fastcharge unit by EV Guru, Jamie, and the different options to connect to public charge points currently available to EV drivers. 

As an added bonus, Mayor Hopkins will be spending the week in one of the Centre’s long-term test drive vehicles, the BMW i3, to give him a proper chance to experience the car and lifestyle for himself.
