We're delighted that the Malvern Hills Electric Automobile Association (electrAA) are teaming up with the Festival this year with an afternoon of talks / panel discussions and a static display of EVs. Find out how electric cars are developing and why owning one is now a very viable proposition. Malvern is part of a central UK network of charging points, so come along in your own EV and park up at one of the charging locations in town...

Question Time with Expert Panel

(Circle Bar)

Ben Boxall, Adrian Brand, Joe Patel, Mike Schooling, Craig Tonge.

Do you have a question about electric cars you were too afraid to ask? This is your opportunity to ask our panel of experts about owning an EV and to ask them about their experiences.


Some example questions you may wish to ask:

  • What are the pros and cons with owning an electric vehicle?
  • Is the range good enough for my typical usage profile?
  • How much does it cost to service an electric car?
  • Can I charge it from my home 13A socket?
  • Where are all the charging points around the region?
  • Does it cost very much to fully charge a car?
  • What if I run out of charge on my journey?
