ESCP Europe’s Energy Society and the Research Centre in Energy Management (EMC), in association with TryMyEV, are delighted to announce the launch of the School's Electric Vehicle Road Trip 2016. The event will take place on 12th March at 10.30am for a 12.00 start at the London campus.
The one-week tour in stunning Tesla Electric Vehicles will visit four of the School's six campuses (Berlin, London, Paris and Turin), crossing seven international borders between 13th and 19th March, 2016. Participants will also visit Tesla’s factory in the Netherlands and other places important to the trip.
The Society’s key aim is to show that electric vehicles are perfect for such long-distance travel, and do not compromise on style, comfort and convenience.
To welcome the team, each ESCP Europe campus will host fascinating discussions on the topics of energy efficiency, sustainable transport and climate change. The London launch event will host esteemed guests to participate in a thought-provoking discussion on "Electric Vehicles in the UK : Turning Niche into Mainstream ".
