Peugeot showed the children from 10-16 years olds how easy it is to learn an EV and owning an electric car is. While 40% of parents wanted to buy an EV for their children and 25% of parents said that their children are insisting to buy Electric vehicles moving from their diesel and petrol cars.
This year there is a huge growth in the sales of Electric vehicles in the UK with more than 32,000 electric cars are registered this September alone.

Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, and future generations must be aware of the benefits that come with owning an EV. Our day with the young drivers has demonstrated how accessible electric vehicles can be for anyone thinking about their next car. We hope they enjoyed their time with us and found it to be useful insight into the world of EVs.”
