Beaulieu goes electric

Sunday 23 May sees Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum, start its 2021 season with a brand new event called ‘Simply Electric’.

It is the first of 15 Covid-secure rallies planned to take place in the grounds of Beaulieu Palace this summer and will bring together electric cars and plug-in hybrids, electric motorcycles and e-bikes for a socially-distanced event.

Enthusiasts will be in a 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.

Pre-booking is essential.
