Current± publisher Solar Media is delighted to welcome BP Chargemaster as sponsor of the Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence (EVIEs) Awards 2020.
BP Chargemaster, a brand synonymous with EV charging infrastructure in the UK, is sponsoring the OEM of the Year category, which will recognise the level of innovation and development shown by original equipment manufacturers as they embrace the transition to electric vehicles.
Tom Callow, director of communications and strategy at BP Chargemaster, said supporting this category highlights the company’s belief that model choice and availability of vehicles will be critical to driving EV adoption.
“We know the demand is out there, so we are really hoping to see a big ramp up in volumes coming to the UK in 2020. There are some fantastic new models coming to market, with around 200 miles now being the minimum range of most electric cars, so the judges will no doubt have their work cut out to pick a winner!” he said.
The inaugural EVIEs takes place on the evening of 29 April 2020, where up to 19 awards will be won by those excelling in the EV sector.
The awards coincide with the EV World Congress, the marquee event of Solar Media’s Everything EV series of events.
