Gridserve launches EV test drive programme at forecourts


The programme will begin on July 16 at Gridserve’s’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.

Back-to-back test drives are available at the facilities in Essex and Norfolk, ensuring drivers have a chance to compare and contrast, ask for advice and find the best car for them.

Gridserve’s EV charging infrastructure is powered by net zero carbon energy, supported by its hybrid solar + battery farms and delivered to customers at public charge points.

The company says leasing provides a cost-effective entry route into an electric car without the long-term commitment and that its EV test drive programme means customers do not have to visit multiple car showrooms to try out the latest cars, saving time.

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 very own electric car group test.

“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.”

The test drives are bookable online at
