The Easter hols are almost over, and this weekend is the time to head into town and gather the stationary ready to fill those pencil cases for the final time this school year! But whilst you’re rushing around for those last minute uniforms, why not stop by Castle Square, for an event like you’ve never seen before!
The Clean Air Roadshow is a FREE event that will have something for everyone – low-cost sustainable transport options for dad, Titan the robot for the children, and some top-of-the-range supercars for mum…
Running from 10am-4pm, the Clean Air Roadshow will be hosting a wide variety of vehicles from suppliers such as Nissan, Mitsubishi, Kia, BMW, Tesla and more.
The display will include a BMW i3, Tesla model S, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Audi A3 Sportback e-tron to name just a few. There will also be the chance for the kids to climb on board a vintage Sinclair C5, showcasing just how far technology has come in the last 32 years!
We will also have some cars POWERED BY HYDROGEN, including the Toyota Mirai and Riversimple Rasa, which are part of a full circle journey. The science behind these machines was actually discovered by Swansea-born physicist, Sir William Grove, and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell has gone from a mere myth to generating enough energy to power a fully-fledged road worthy vehicle (how amazing is that?!) At the Clean Air Roadshow, you can even hop on The Hydrogen Bike and generate your own bit of Hydrogen car fuel!
Don’t be embarrassed
This event is your chance to ask those ‘silly’ questions about low carbon vehicle options – how do they work? Will I be left stranded on my daily commute? Do I need a special charger? How much do they really cost? – to the people who know the most about them, the manufacturers themselves!
But if its more than just transport that you want to learn or chat about, don’t worry, there will be information stands from a whole host of local organisations and businesses that are experts in air pollution, sustainability, renewable energy and how to build a greener Swansea, for us and our future.
The Clean Air Roadshow is an innovative and pioneering event, sure to be a day filled with technology, cars, learning, and some cool dance moves (from Titan that is, not us)
See you on the weekend
We’ll be there on the day keeping you up-to-date with all the latest news and happenings, share your photos and videos with us on social media #CleanAirRoadshow
