The Electric Marathon Kyiv – Monte Carlo 2015 was officially presented on April 18. On this day organizers of the Marathon introduced the concept of the event and reveal all the secrets of “green” rally in country equestrian club “Butenko Stable”.
During the presentation there was organized a test drive of electric cars Tesla and Nissan Leaf. It is not surprising that the majority of people, who managed to drive the electric car, have already expressed their willingness to change their automobiles with internal combustion engine to electric cars. The reason for this is not only environmental friendliness of electric vehicles, but also significant savings on gasoline. According to the Ukrainian tariff, the price of electric vehicle charging is scandalously low – only about 7 hryvnias per 100 kilometers. In addition, everyone could test the quads and scooters, powered by electricity during the event. Young guests of the presentation also had an opportunity to drive mini-copies of electric cars.
Organizers of the rally hope that the Marathon will start a new era of electricvehicles and build environmentally friendly mobile community in Ukraine.
“We organized a presentation of our Marathon in equestrian club not accidentally. Thus, we would like to focus on the absolute ecological compatibility of electric vehicles. After all, no one car with internal combustion engine can’t be admitted to the place of equestrian competition. At the moment it is very important to show people the necessity to protect the nature”,- said the director of Electric Marathon, Honorary Consul of Monaco in Estonia Juri Tamm.
