Nearly 40 electric vehicles assembled at Truro’s Lemon Quay on Sunday, before winding their way across the King Harry Ferry and onto the Cornwall Hotel.

The event, hosted by Hawkins Motors and supported by electric vehicle consultancy Eco Drive, was held to raise the awareness of electric vehicles in Cornwall.

Hawkins Motors director, Johnny Hawkins, said: “We’re passionate about electric motoring – it’s here to stay. The rally demonstrated just how many people and businesses are already using electric cars, changed people’s perspectives and proved that Cornwall is already ahead of the game.”
