County Wexford Chamber hosted a Business After Hours Networking & EV Expo on Thursday 12th October in partnership with J Donohoe BMW.
The event took place at the J Donohoe BMW showroom in Quarry Park, Enniscorthy. Speakers included Dermot Brennan, Head of Business at J Donohoe BMW, Paul Nash commerical director with Carra Group spoke to all present about the extended range of new electric vehicles, along with the growing infrastructure of chargers across the whole road network, and how this is eliminating the “range anxiexty” that people would have previously felt.
Caroline Kidd , journalist and founder of the motoring blog Changing Lanes took us back to the first time she drove an electric vehicle and how she sees the market going in the future. Guests were invited to take test drives in full electric models like the new BMW i5, i4 and iX3, and learn more about the market outlook for electric vehicles in Ireland, home and public charging, and the benefits of making the switch to electric. Overall it was a great evening.
