UK AWARE 09 to showcase largest gathering of Green Vehicles in the UK

Love cars, but want to do your bit for the environment? Forget Top Gear, the UK’s only green consumer show, UK AWARE, is pleased to announce that it will have the largest and most diverse collection of green vehicles ever seen under one roof at this year’s show.

Exhibitors confirmed so far include: Tesla, Saab, G-Wiz, Twike, Zipee Bikes, The Battery Vehicle Society, Urbanites and Scooters, Ashwood and Green Motorsport, with more to be announced before the show at London Olympia Two on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th April 2009.

With well over 50 vehicles expected, it will to be an amazing showcase, including the below:

The Tesla Roadster is a beautifully stylish, 2-seater electric vehicle. It is a staggering six times more efficient than a sports car while producing one-tenth of the pollution. The Roadster does not have a tailpipe because it produces zero emissions. It delivers full availability of performance, 100% of the time, even when stopped at traffic lights and can reach impressive top speeds of 125mph.

The TWIKE Active is a light-weight electric vehicle which is also equipped with two sets of pedals that can be operated individually by the driver and the passenger. The pedal drive acts directly on the rear wheels with only a 5 speed gear box and a long chain in between. This system guarantees an efficient use of the human power input and makes the TWIKE Active a real hybrid vehicle.

Green Motorsport Ltd works towards reducing global climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels and is currently developing viable renewable vehicles for the road. The electric Wisper is part of Green Motorsport’s green fleet of racing cars. It has 4 GMS motors and controllers – the high torque of the electric motors gives superb acceleration and enables the Wisper to do 0-60 in under 5 seconds, showing that green technology can work on the racetrack.

Founder of UK AWARE, Danny Carnegie, says: ‘”We are so excited to have such huge names in the motoring industry at this year’s show. With vehicles ranging from 30mph city vehicles to the sub 4 seconds 0-60 super-car eater and home made to luxury marques on show, everyone should come along and see how they can save money on motoring costs, cut carbon emissions and re-assess what is considered 'normal'.”

Now in its second year, UK AWARE takes place at London Olympia Two on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th April 2009 between 10am and 6pm. For more information and tickets, please visit
