Beaulieu will be starting its 2021 events season with brand new event Simply Electric on Sunday 23rd May, sparking into life with an electric-themed treat to look forward to following the easing of current restrictions.

The first of 15 Covid-secure Simply rallies planned to take place in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, Simply Electric will bring together electric cars and plug-in hybrids, electric motorcycles and e-bikes for a socially-distanced display that owners, enthusiasts and families will all love.

Enthusiasts will be at the heart of the rally, which will celebrate the past, present and future of electric motoring as owners are invited to safely park up in the Beaulieu parkland, admire each other’s machines and talk technology.

All EVs are welcome, from the latest high-performance Tesla, through cutting-edge family cars such as the Jaguar I-PACE and Audi e-tron, to the popular Nissan Leaf and Toyota Prius, or even the Sinclair C5 design classic.

Maybe you’re lucky enough to own a classic car that has been converted for modern-day motoring with an electric motor? If it runs on battery power, then why not silently motor your way across the New Forest to join in and enjoy a great day out.

Enthusiasts will be in plug-in powered heaven when they head inside the newly reopened National Motor Museum, where they can see electric vehicles spanning the history of motoring, from the 1901 Columbia Electric used by Queen Alexandra in the grounds of Sandringham House to the space-age design of the Volkswagen XL1 hybrid. Other electric highlights include the ultra-efficient sun-powered 1993 Solar Flair, as well as the 1939 electric Harrods delivery van and classic 1947 Brush Pony milk float. Bike lovers will enjoy seeing the 2016 Riese and Müller Nevo Nuvinci electric bike.

All tickets must be bought in advance, with carefully-managed capacity limits in place. For more details, click here.
