Believe it or not, but EVA England was the result of a chargepoint chat…

 

EVA England was established in June 2020 by six passionate EV enthusiasts who were inspired by the advocacy and services that consumer associations representing EV drivers in Scotland, the Netherlands, Norway, the USA and elsewhere were providing. Amidst a pandemic and resulting lockdown, we met weekly to share our experiences and hone what we wanted from an EV-focused members organisation in England.

Making the switch to EVs was one of the best decisions each of us has made, but it wasn’t without its difficulties. From picking our first EV, to learning to charge and wanting to connect with other passionate drivers – we’ve been through it all.

That’s why we founded EVA England – we want to offer a voice for current, new and prospective electric vehicle drivers and accelerate the transition to an electric England.

In our first six months, we have responded to a Government Consultation on ending the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans, advocated for a 2030 Phase Out Date to Government and the media, presented to the EV Energy Taskforce and have established connections with other EV groups in both the UK and abroad – and we’ve only just begun.

Going forward, we aim to support and represent EV drivers in England, to offer unbiased advice on all things electric vehicles, provide guides and tips for current and prospective drivers, as well as grow an empowered community of EV drivers in England. We promise to operate transparently as we champion our members and equip them to be EV advocates in their communities.

When EVA England refers to ‘electric vehicles’ this means cars and vans (up to 3.5 tonnes), and battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, ie. any car or van that can be plugged in.

EVA England is a registered non-profit Community Interest Company in England, number 2649115.
