This series of events is specially designed to help Berkshire locals to learn about, experience and celebrate electric vehicles across three exciting days.

For the first time, Octopus EV brings together a range of the world’s best EVs, a team of impartial experts to help consumers choose the right vehicle (and get a great price), 100% renewable electricity for the selected electric car and home, smart charger that saves money when charging, and a free VIP support helpline for as long as they remain a customer.

Berkshire locals will have the chance to experience everything to do with electric vehicles from test driving the cars themselves, to learning about charging, and about Octopus Energy Go - the very first time of use tariff designed specifically for EV owners.

There are around 40,000 deaths in the UK every from air pollution (source: Royal College of Physicians), and 59% of people living amid illegal pollution levels in the UK

Brand new research conducted by Queen Mary University of London shows air pollution is linked to those changes in the structure of the heart seen in early stages of heart failure. The finding could help explain the increased number of deaths seen in areas with high levels of dirty air. Such premature deaths can be linked to a number of causes including cancer, asthma, stroke and heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and changes linked to dementia.

The health problems resulting from exposure to air pollution have a high cost to people who suffer from illness and premature death, to our health services and to business. In the UK, these costs add up to more than £20 billion every year. .

Electric cars can bring more to Berkshire than just great fun and affordable driving. It is the biggest move we can make towards a sustainable future, and making an impact on the health of local residents.

Octopus Electric Vehicles CEO, Fiona Howarth, said:

'As the only company to offer the full electric vehicle package, Octopus Electric Vehicles is delighted to present the Windsor Electric Vehicle Festival taking place from 18th August - 1st September 2018.
'The events will give locals an exciting chance to find out more about electric vehicles from our team of experts, how to make the switch and book a test drive, across three different exciting events, while demonstrating our commitment and passion for the UK’s switch to electric vehicles - giving us zero-carbon transportation and importantly - cleaner air.'
