Bath to Geneva and back - 1500 miles by EV

Postby Kevin Sharpe » Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:11 pm

On Sunday I start my trip from Bath to Geneva to attend the Tesla Model S European launch http://www.teslamotors.com/en_GB/event/geneva-motor-show-0

I will be at the Goodwood Breakfast Club on Sunday and also take part in the Zurich to Geneva drive with ~30 Tesla Roadsters on 9th March.

I will be using the HPC 'fast' charge network and hotels along the route http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=213370990990417216424.00049f03c041e2f155540

My colleague Charles Roberts and I will be tweeting if you'd like to follow our progress;

Wow! You're doing really well. Proof that electric cars are becoming a realistic option for everyone.
My new book is out: The 2011 Electric Car Guide is available from Amazon and all good bookshops.
