Gridserve, the electric vehicle charging specialist, is launching a new EV test drive programme at its Electric Forecourts in Braintree and Norwich.

It claims the new service from Gridserve Car Leasing will provide the only permanent locations in UK where drivers can experience electric vehicles from multiple brands, get impartial advice, find out more about charging solutions and explore leasing offers.

It says the one-stop solution will save customers time as they can book back-to-back test drives, giving them a chance to compare and contrast different models.

The programme is being launched on July 16th at Gridserve’s first EV Awareness Day of 2022 and drivers are invited to book to drive a range of cars from Tesla Model 3 and Model Y, Polestar 2, Mercedes EQB and the latest Nissan Leaf.

Robert Buckland, sales and operations director from Gridserve Car Leasing said: “All the best car reviewers test drive cars back-to-back before they come to their expert verdicts, and we think customers should get the same best-in-class experience.

“Our new test drive programme gives customers the chance to select vehicles and experience their own electric car group test, following in the footsteps of Hammond, Clarkson, or the latest reviewers from What Car? as they choose their next car.

“The key difference is whether our customers are experienced experts or brand new to EVs, the Gridserve Car Leasing team will help customers to make the best choice for them.”
