Billions are being invested in electric vehicles, but a considerable amount of UK buyers are still unsure of making the switch.
Putting electric vehicles in the eye of the public through Lewis Hamilton’s team X44 is a fantastic opportunity for people to see a new side to the eco-friendly vehicles.
On the team, Hamilton said in an interview with BBC Sport: “Every single one of us has the power to make a difference, and it means so much to me that I can use my love of racing, together with my love for our planet, to have a positive impact.”

The promoting of EVs through Extreme E is the drive we need to get electric vehicles at the forefront of people’s minds. Of course, just because people are thinking about them doesn’t mean they will take the next step and purchase one. There are still concerns in terms of cost and charging sites and that’s where we come in.
We here at Plug-N-Go are on a mission to get 3,000 charging sites installed across the UK in the next five years. This will hopefully encourage more people to take the plunge and join the electric movement.
