We Gatecrashed A Petrol Head Car Show In Electric cars!!!


welcome to today’s video today’s video
is all about what we need to do as EV drivers to help the adoption of Ev’s
today I am going to Rotherham show which is one of the largest shows in the north
to promote ev’s at basically a petrol head show now last year I did this on my
own with Dean Fielding and this year I’m bringing the whole Ev community with
me next door to me here I have Craig Tonge from the Renault Zoe owners club
we’ve got Mick Paul in the model 3 we’ve got Daz Sant from Yorkshire Ev we have a
whole selection of ev’s from small price to high price Craig “YES” have you pre heated your car
this morning “yes” guess what is it cold in your car “YES” yeah guess what
best thing about this er BMW I’ve got a thing got heated seats now before we get
to Rotherham I don’t actually need a charge but I want it to bring someone
to an instavolt to show him the future Craig Craig Tongue “hello mate nice to see you” this
this is what we call an instavolt yeah it’s quite it’s quite it’s quite
it’s very expensive to use it’s it’s but it’s still cheaper than electricity
it’s 30p a kilowatt hour “35” 35 kilowatt sorry
so it’s 4p cheaper but what to start the charge see this contactless you just tap
your card on it and then and then “that works amazing” so
mainly and then you pick a plug and put it in your car and it just charges no no
app “quick he’s put his car on put your car in” *LAUGHING* do you know what I’m I’m pretty
impressive so this is the new Zoe’s going to have “yes and and here’s the
best part about these plugs they can” lock into the charge points so people
can’t leave them on the floor do they Yes this has it locked in
that theory went out the window didn’t it The more observant people will
notice that we are 12 “yes” and we’ve aligned the cars S 3 X and then
technically there is an I so it’s technically sexi “thats pushing it nick” how old are we well i was gonna say 12 but i think that might be bit generous more like 10
*LAUGHING* It makes a big difference this year that it’s not
just me and you yeah that’s great we’ve got some fantastic support from well loads of people we got a whole row of cars down here so we have time to go get something to eat and drink this time a bit more relaxed yeah the first year you did it on your own
“yeah” then you brought me last year “yeah” and today we’ve brought everyone “there’s about fifteen
of us so really looking forward to it *MUSIC* 2:13:09 It was my first go come on you got to beat 2:15 Charlie if i beat you, you buy the coffee and tea’s next and if i don’t you still buy the tea and coffee’s *LAUGHING* Charlie just

*laughing* Cheers mate Gabby Gabby Gabby Gabby Charlie’s come here on his day off and
he’s currently watching the Grand prix burning fossil fuels at the
moment so he said just wait one more lap and then you can film whatever
you want with me so to put him off and not film that because it is his day off
I’m gonna make you talk about work *LAUGHING* what would you like to know about work why did you turn up here today on your day off I think it’s I think the stuff the groups you guys are doing
is really really really cool I think I don’t know what’s happening here today I
wanted to come and just say hello and hang out with you guys but also the
busyness of this has been really really worth while the fact that we are are talking to people that don’t know
anything about electric vehicles “yeah” and I think worth to note here for his
boss Fiona he hasn’t done any work he’s not promoted your company at all he just
basically told people about Ev’s and then occasionally when they I’m thinking of buying one he goes I’ve got a leaflet *laughing* Yea … yea it what were here to do educate and then we
come in and help after yeah yeah no it’s it’s nice to see Octopus attend events like this because you do quite a lot yeah we try and get to as many as
possible obviously there’s limitations with where we are in the country OH CRASH LOOK *LAUGHING* COME ON COME ON he’s nearly there he’s nearly there yea no you’ve done quite a lot of events like this i have noticed okay so normally you take all the cars
oh yeah and and the other thing as well as if anybody is looking to host an
event or do anything like that we will we will try and come and help as much as we can
so if anyone watching this you’ve got an EV event going on in the country 100% octopus energy will try and support it 100% just get in touch with us and we can go
from there okay and that’s Octopus electric vehicles not energy octopus
electric vehicles *MUSIC* No i’ll fall down like a sack of spuds you reccording Go get the ball Gabby go get the ball gabby! go get it go get it *LAUGHING* Getting Charlie there No I’m doing you Mike “your doing me” You’ve just committed that you’re going to basically get a mx-5 and you’re going to
convert it yourself have I just committed officially to that now you’ve just
affirmation “i heard that” so I’ve got a 2004 mx-5 which is now going to be electrified at
some point in future yeah that’s what you just said but nobody’s witnessed it and you just said you’re going to do it all by yourself and what what
qualifications have you got as an electrical engineer Well am a paramedics so am quite good at electrics on certain occasions I you do now technically now run Staffordshire EVs technically yes which means now you can ask your members of Staffordshire EV’s if they’d like you help you convert an
mx-5 absolutely yes big push for staffs Evs early days for them and we’re gonna
get really really big bigger than Derbyshire EV’s I hope at one point yeah yeah won’t be bigger than me because I was ask everyone for my youtube channel to
join Derbyshire Evs I’d like to say am being sponsored by but i can’t now am not being sponsored by anyone am just basically I’ve got a Renault Formula One top here and then I’ve got a
Williams racing Jacket in there so if I put them both on at the same time
everyone gets confused just keeps you unbiased that was the word I was looking have you had a chat with
many people about EVs Today Mike a few and surprise to me my lovely wife has as well yes for a few people milling around
really really good turnout today it’s almost like a and how many times have
you been asked how long does it take to
charge oh every person asks Every person asks every person asks and when you say half an hour they kind of look at you and go and you see the
cogs in their heads go it’s weird you still get that but then again most of us
don’t go out to interact with the public in non ev event becuase this is a non ev
event “absolutely” *MUSIC* it’s been an extremely long day today
here at Rotherham show we have spoke to hundreds of hundreds of Ev curious
people and loads of people who really have no interest in eVs of all the cars
here which there is classics OLD you know old classics old police cars everything
the Ev’s were the most popular cars here today viewed by everyone and that
is just a testament of how much this market in segments is growing and the
interest of everyone who wants to buy an electric car so thanks very much for watching this video don’t wait to get subscribe
