Goodwood Festival of Speed to feature ‘Electric Avenue’ exhibition

‘Electric Avenue – The Road to 2030’ is an interactive exhibition featuring everything electric, from zero-emissions city cars to hypercars

Goodwood Festival of Speed

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will include a new interactive exhibition of the latest zero-emissions models. Called ‘Electric Avenue – The Road to 2030’, the attraction will feature a variety of electric cars, from city cars and saloons to SUVs and hypercars.

According to the organisers of the event, the goal for the ‘Electric Avenue’ exhibition is to make “electric mobility more accessible” and provide visitors with the opportunity to explore and compare models from different brands.

Industry experts will be also on hand to discuss questions any visitors may have on topics like financing and running costs of electric vehicles, as well as concerns about ownership, such as charging times and the realities of range and reliability.

One goal of the exhibition is to empower visitors to switch to electric, with an emphasis on the rapidly approaching 2030 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars.

The Duke of Richmond, who owns the Goodwood estate where the Festival of Speed is held, said of the upcoming exhibition: “The Festival of Speed has always taken a defining position on cutting-edge technology and the future of mobility, and we have long championed electric, connected and autonomous vehicles."

It seems that the limelight at the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be split between the best internal-combustion-engined creations and the latest electric models appearing at next week’s event. 

BMW previously announced it'll be showcasing the new i4 – its rival to the Tesla Model 3 – at its ‘Electric Boulevard’ exhibit. Meanwhile, Polestar is set to debut the Precept concept car – the Swedish brand’s soon-to-be flagship saloon – at this year’s Festival of Speed.
