Charge Side Chats
Introducing, Charge Side Chats, our award winning campaign aimed at helping UK drivers make the switch to electric vehicles!
Meet our chatters
We've been chatting with London Taxi drivers, Tesla enthusiasts and families who shared with us their experiences of driving, charging and living with an electric car, and why they'll never go back to a petrol or diesel. We also spoke with Sam Clarke, Chief Vehicle Officer at Gridserve, to discuss the future of Electric Vehicles, and the positive impact this electric forecourt has had on the UK so far, putting us firmly on the road to a greener future.
Charge Side Chats has been designed to raise awareness of electric cars, the access and suitability for everyday drivers. As leaders in Decarbonisation, our number 1 goal is to get the UK driving electric.
Now is the time for change, now is the time to chat Electric.
