When I read the email from British Gas about this competition I actually thought I had won a car too. So sorry to repeat the cruel trick, but now I have your attention how about winning a lovely Christmas present for a child, or the child at heart in your life? Even better this car needs no batteries and teaches children all about sustainable energy. I have 5 Solar powered Go Go cars to give away.
Easy to assemble, this amazing car works from natural sunlight and can move backwards and forwards just like a regular toy car.
Don’t worry if the sun isn’t out, playtime can still continue. Simply connect the handle generator to use the car when the clouds appear.
This giveaway comes courtesy of British Gas, in celebration of the Future Car Challenge 2012 which took place last week and provided spectators with a fantastic line-up of Electric Vehicles, celebrity drivers and insights into the future of the EV industry.
I was a fairly early adopter to the Toyota Prius, a hybrid car that used a combination of electric and petrol sadly it had to be replaced when we needed something that could tow a caravan, but I miss it hugely, it was so quiet, easy to drive and used hardly any petrol.
British Gas provide charging solutions for many leading EV manufacturers, Nissan, Renault, Hitachi Capital, Toyota and Vauxhall. British Gas’ role at the FCC was to charge up six different electric cars, each being driven by a different celebrity or influencer ‘racing’ from Brighton, to the finish in London.
I enjoyed this video of the Future Car Challenge too, for the shots of my old stomping ground Brighton, but also for the goal of normalising people’s perceptions of electric cars. One day plugging in your car will be as normal as plugging in your mobile phone. I’d like to have seen some female EV ambassadors.
