To capitalise on the London 2012 spirit, Revolve are organising two interrelated events when the world’s spotlight will be on London - between the Olympics and Paralympics. The overarching theme is future transport with a high level conference and investment pitches (co-organised by Cleantech Investor) at London’s City Hall - supported by the Mayor of London.
On Saturday 18 August, the sixth annual Eco-Rally will showcase a wide range of future transport services and vehicles from some of the world's leading automakers and innovative new start-ups. Many will be driven by familiar faces setting off in convoy from Oxford to London via the legendary Ace Cafe - proving that modern, eco-friendly cars, bikes and vans can get us from "A to B without the three Cs" (carbon, cost & congestion).
The event includes exciting new product launches from the likes of Ford, Zero Motorcycles and Rieju, plus Peugeot's mobility service and an amazing Vauxhall police car. City transport will be a hot topic in London during the 2012 Olympic Games and now the UK Government's Plug-in Car and Plug-in Van grants make zero emission transport even more affordable.

At the height of the fuel protests and the heated debate about food vs fuel, Revolve set British motorists a challenge: Drive from Brighton to London in the greenest way you can. The destination was a music festival on Clapham Common, where the drivers were tested for eco-driving skills whilst their cars were tested for emissions.
The Eco-Rally represents a real-world journey. The route varies from year to year, but always includes famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Oxford University, Brighton Pier, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, London City Hall and Tower Bridge. In the past, we flippd the Veteran Car Run on it's head by driving future cars from the coast to the capital (Brighton to London). Currently the route is from Oxford to London (see details here). We have big plans for future events and would love to hear your suggestions.
