EV Experience Centre Nearly Ready

The Milton Keynes Electric Vehicle Experience Centre (EVEC) is due to open this Saturday, 22nd July. Being curious (ok, nosey) I scouted it out on Tuesday after my visit to the new Tesla showroom.

It has a fairly good location near the middle of the main shopping centre; it’s on Crown Walk, next to the big Boots store. It looks smaller than I expected, at least on the outside. Currently there isn’t much to see – the windows are blanked out and there was someone on the door in front of a sign saying ‘Invited Guests Only’.

Two plugin cars were on display at the intersection of Crown Walk and Silbury Arcade – a BMW i8 and a Kia Optima PHEV.

We have been invited to the official EVEC launch so I’ll report back after that.
