During the day in the car park will be an assortment of EV’s, both fully electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in Electric Hybrid Vehicles (PEHV). The vehicles will be from both dealers and members of the public, who will display their own vehicle and give real world experience of owning same. Blackrock Tidy Towns will proudly display an excellent example of an EV van, the Kangoo Van kindly loaned to Blackrock Tidy Towns by local Renault dealers Blackstone Motors.
