Test drives aren’t just the most important part of the research process, they’re also the most fun.

Our multi-brand experience (with a complete absence of pushy sales people) means you’ll be able to enjoy test drives like never before.

We want to help you find the right car for you, so we’ll let you compare brands with back-to-back test drives and we’ll even be your co-driver if you’re feeling nervous.

Kids' Zone

It’s difficult at the best of times trying to find fun things for the younger members of your family to do.

So, come along and grab a hot chocolate and let them enjoy our dedicated Kids' Zone, complete with a treasure hunt, colouring sheets and interactive games.

You can thank us later.

On EV Experience Days, you’ll be our V-VIPs, with our EV Gurus on hand to answer any questions you may have, whether that’s helping you choose the best electric family car, or learning the ropes on charging.

It’s all well and good having a swanky space with fancy solar panels, but it’s our EV Gurus that make the GRIDSERVE difference.

Electric mobility

We’re not just passionate about electric cars, but the electrification of transport at every level.

Switching from fossil fuel-powered cars to e-bikes and electric scooters, for example, can be a great way to reduce congestion and improve air quality in urban centres.

Thanks to some great partners you’ll be able to discover the benefits of active travel for yourself.

GRIDSERVE’s purpose is to #deliver sustainable energy and move the needle on climate change
