EV Hire supports Rolls Royce at Goodwood Festival of Speed

19th Jul 2023

EV Hire was delighted to support one of our valued clients in supplying four Mercedes EQVs to Rolls Royce in Chichester for use as VIP shuttles at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Rolls Royce, the global leader in luxury vehicles, maintains a production and service facility set in a landscaped campus close to the site of the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit.

The company has long been a supporter of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, one of the world’s biggest celebrations of automotive culture both old and new and now in its 30th year, and invites international guests to join them as they display their latest models in a display area close to Goodwood House.

For 2023, the focus was on Rolls Royce’s move to electrification with the presentation of the Spectre, the company’s first all-electric luxury car. To compliment Rolls Royce’s move to sustainable transportation, the company requested four Mercedes EQVs, the world’s leading electric MPV, based on the hugely popular V Class, for the duration of the Festival of Speed.

EV Hire, working with our trusted partners, supplied the vehicles which were used to transport Rolls Royce guests from their airports on arrival and between their hotels and the Festival of Speed site throughout the four-day event, shortened to three days due to adverse weather.

Managing Director Daryl Pearce was proud that one of the UK’s most prestigious companies had chosen EV Hire to support their VIP transportation.

“Without question, the Mercedes EQV is a class leader in the all-electric MPV sector,” he said. “With flexible seating configurations, a luxurious interior and a range of over 200 miles, there is no other all-electric vehicle that can accommodate VIP guests in comfort and luxury for an event such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

“EV Hire was delighted to be selected as a supplier and we look forward to working with our client and Rolls Royce at many events in the future.”

EV Hire can supply the Mercedes EQV in both seven- and eight-seat configurations for periods of two days up to two years. Please call 0800 6895074 (09:00 – 17:30 Monday – Friday) to discuss your requirements.

Right where do I start! 5* is underestimate! Literally EV Hire puts every single car hiring companies to Shame! I rented a vehicle from EV Hire during bank holiday weekend. I was very last minute to the point where I put in the request at 9.45pm on a Friday night for next day 12pm delivery. Daryl accepted the booking, and I got the confirmation within half and hour to say the booking is…

These guys are in a league of their own! I just had a first rental experience with EV Hire and it was as smooth as one can imagine. Daryl and his team would deliver and collect the car from you for fee, they are quick to respond, punctual to arrive and have a great fleet of electric cars and high end 4x4s available. Last but no least, approval process for non-UK driving licenses is very smooth and…
