The 2012 Eco-Rally will start in the new electric car capital of Europe against the backdrop of classic Gothic architecture. Expect to see a range of vehicles and sustainable travel options, ranging from affordable to quirky to downright sexy.
The mobile motor-show sees the launch of several new models including electric cars and motorcycles capable of traveling over 100 miles on a single charge... plus range-extended hybrids capable of much more. Many will be driven by familiar faces to Ace Cafe London and then Waterloo Place, central London, proving that low/ zero emission travel between cities is possible now.
