Driving the change to electric cars

Sutherland Campbell is driving the change to electric cars, by taking delivery of a BMW i3 from local dealer Cotswold Group in Gloucester. Following their work on BMW Group's electric MINI E trial in the UK, Sutherland Campbell has been closely monitoring the development of BMW's i brand and specifically the i3. Managing Director, Jim Campbell and Director, Maggie Campbell were BMW's guests at the launch of i3 in London's Billingsgate last summer. Jim also attended the i3 launch at the Frankfurt Motorshow last September and specified Sutherland Campbell's i3 at Cotswold last October. They took delivery of the car during March 2014 and have just clocked up 15,000 miles of i3 motoring. The charge point installed at their office in Wormington near Broadway was fitted by ChargeMaster, as part of their POLAR EV charging network. The i3 is fitted with BMW's optional range extender and its distinctive styling with two-tone silver and black exterior colour is attracting ever increasing attention on every journey.
