Motorists will be able to test-drive and hire electric vehicles at a new dedicated facility which is set to open in the heart of Glasgow.

The facility will open alongside a permanent renewable energy exhibition at power firm SSE’s Scottish Hydro Centre for Renewable Excellence.

Cars, electric scooters and bikes will be available to rent from the centre, close to Glasgow Central train station. The Greenway electric scooters and Freego electric bikes used were supplied by Electric Bikes Scotland who are based in Dundonald Street Dundee.

The facility will be next to an interactive renewable energy exhibition run by SSE.

The Power of Now exhibition will include a display showing how a hydroelectric dam works and a simulation of the electricity network, showing how renewable generation connects to the transmission network and is then transported into the home.

There will also be a visual display of a “smart home”, featuring the latest technology in heat pumps, electric heating and boilers.
