MINI UK has announced its official partnership with the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre (EVEC), Milton Keynes.
As part of the new partnership, two MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid1 vehicles have now joined the Experience fleet and are on display so visitors can explore the car or book a test-drive. In March next year the MINI Electric2, the brand’s first-ever fully electric vehicle, will be launched in the UK and also join the EVEC fleet.
The EVEC is part of the Go Ultra Low City scheme funded by the government and supports the town’s aim to grow and promote the use of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, offering free education and advice to visitors.
David George, Director, MINI UK said: “MINI fully supports what the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre stands for, to inform and transform public opinion about flexibility, whether it’s for the daily commute or a big weekend adventure, so it’s a perfect addition to the EVEC fleet.”
Ted Foster, Electric Vehicle Centre Manager said: “I am really excited about what our new MINI partnership will do for the EVEC and for the future adoption of electric vehicles.”
