Lookers Joins Forces with Amanda Stretton for an EV Challenge Ahead of COP26

We were proud this month to enlist the support of racing legend, broadcaster and journalist Amanda Stretton who led a brand new Lookers charge to COP26 to help raise awareness of the importance of all-electric driving can have in reducing carbon emissions.

In what was one of Amanda’s biggest challenges yet in a stellar career, Amanda completed a 800-mile six-day all-electric journey across Great Britain from Kent to Glasgow, documenting her journey in 16 of our next-generation EVs on a route that took in some of the UK’s pioneering sustainable and renewable energy projects.

Documenting her journey and stopping off at a variety of Lookers dealerships for recharging and support along the way, Amanda was also keen to raise awareness of the wide range of electric plug-in vehicles already available that have been carefully and sleekly designed to be kinder on the environment.

This all-electric journey to COP26 with Lookers represented an unrivalled opportunity to help make sure that the move to greener driving is as smooth and easy as it can be,” Amanda said.

Lookers is committed to the development of all-electric driving and in promoting its environmental benefits.

Climate change is already here, and Lookers is proud to be proactively playing its part in helping to mitigate its effects and educating staff and customers of the significant benefits and opportunities which all-electric driving can bring,Lookers’ Chief Operating Officer Duncan McPhee said,Embracing this transformation presents many positive benefits for society, the environment and for business and our teams, we are already on that journey.

Amanda took off from Lookers Honda in Orpington on Tuesday 26 October and completed the journey in Glasgow late on Sunday 31 October just as COP26 got under way.

Go electric for less with Lookers

EVs are getting better, and more affordable, with every passing year. Concerns about performance, particularly range, are a thing of the past. The lowest range on our list of affordable electric cars is still many times what the average driver covers in a day.

Then, when you realise how much cheaper EVs are to run, the choice is clear. There’s never been a better time to go electric and take advantage of all that support. Here at Lookers, we’re committed to giving people the info they need to make the right choice.
