The Irish EV-challenge takes place between Lucan and Cork (and back) and between Cork and Lucan (and back). Each year, the goal is to drive the full distance in an optimal time and to prove that a particular driving style could be more efficient on a long distance, depending on the car. When participating to this EV-challenge you contribute to EV awareness by showing Hybrids/ICE drivers that driving a long distance in a BEV is not out of reach!
