Electric car aiming to go from 0 to 60mph in under 1.5 seconds at Goodwood

Date:


The festival will take place across four drama-packed days between June 23 and June 26. Over 200,000 spectators are expected to make their way to West Sussex to witness one of the greatest motoring events on the calendar.

One thing that motoring enthusiasts can look forward to is a tiny electric car that will attempt to set an overall record at Goodwood.

The EV has previously been compared to a Batmobile, because of its similar look.

It belongs to a British EV brand called McMurtry Automotive.

The car, named McMurtry Spéirling, made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year.

The feature will showcase all things EV with cars presented by marques from all around the world.

This will include well-known hatchbacks as well as electric supercars.

Spectators will also be able to enjoy a number of interactive features.

The exhibition will show off all the latest EVs as well as those that will be launched in the future.

Experts will also be available at hand to answer any burning questions about the state of electric motoring.

Festival organisers said that they will not reveal the exact details of the exhibition just yet but added that it will involve “city cars, saloons, SUVs, sportscars and hypercars – whatever kind of EV you’re interested in, you’ll be able to see it in Electric Avenue”.

The event will also play its part in spreading EV awareness.

The organisers said: “The Festival is the greatest celebration of motorsport, automotive culture and future tech there is, and as the UK moves towards a deadline of 2030 for the electrification of all new cars, showcasing and exploring an electric future has never been more important.”
