When we can, we try to show electric cars at public events, and it is pretty clear from talking to members of the public that perception and acceptance of electric cars is increasing fast. We have recently showed the i3 at Milton Keynes shopping centre, and a Renault ZOE in Kings Langley.
Ahead of either of those events, however, we showed the i3 at the Holcot Car Boot Sale. This is a very large event, known officially as the ‘Car Boot and Farmers Market’ and held at the Holcot Showground every Saturday and Thursday from April to October each year. Holcot is off the A43 about halfway between Northampton and Kettering.
At the time there weren’t actually any good offers available on the i3. However, that has now changed as we have arranged PCP deals on the i3 at very good rates. We are therefore in the process of contacting those people at Holcot who expressed interest in the i3 to offer them a test drive.
In our experience, with the i3 it’s a case of once driven, forever smitten!
