On July 11th the ESB ecar’s Fully Charged 2012 International EV Summit will take place at The National Convention Centre, Dublin and the Golf Blue-e-Motion will be in attendance on it’s first ever visit to Ireland.
The Fully Charged 2012 EV summit is set to have a panel of high profile speakers providing insight and information on the progression and the future of electric vehicles. As well as information on the use of EV’s there will be a number of electric vehicles on show at the event, including the soon to be introduced Golf-E-motion.
Volkswagen will enter the Irish electric vehicle market at the end of 2013 and the popular Golf in electric form is expected to be a strong contender against the likes of the LEAF and the Renault EV range which are already established sellers. But I wouldn’t underestimate the Blue-e-motion Golf, it may be late to market but VW have been working on EV’s behind the scenes for quite a long time and never ones to release engineering that doesn’t work means this new Blue-e-motion could be the EV to gain consumer confidence.
Paul Mulvaney, Managing Director ESB ecars said: We are delighted to be able to showcase the Golf Blue-e-Motion for the first time in Ireland at our Fully Charged event. Models such as the Golf and automotive brands such as Volkswagen will play a crucial role in endorsing electric vehicle technology and in providing the motorist with the encouragement and confidence to adopt this innovative and green technology
The Golf Blue-e-Motion roadshow will be visiting a number of selected dealerships in Dublin following the Fully Charged event, see their facebook page to see where it is, http://www.facebook.com/VolkswagenIRL
