It’s a special interest group for people interested in Caterham related Electric Vehicles.
Why an interest group for electric vehicles
I’ve been threatening to set up something along these lines since joining the LT in early 2021 (now late 2022). But now seems as good a time as any. We have legislation affecting all new car sales that’s coming in 2030 along with clean air zones in many major cities. More and more of us are buying EV’s or hybrids and there’s much discussion about what Caterham will do as an EV product along with how existing owners might look to convert their cars to be an EV.
Interest Area Format
This interest area will take the form of BlatChat posts and Zoom Meetings.
Topics for discussion
This will be a fluid agenda as hopefully the years go by, but we will start off with the following main items:
1. Introductions by new attendees
2. What’s new in the EV world
3. Thoughts on Caterham’s plans for EV
4. Seven Conversions
Whilst this group is interested in what is happening in the broader EV world we are focussed on Caterham and Lotus Sevens specifically. This is not the place to ask whether to buy a VW or a Tesla, though I'm sure BlatChat will be more than happy to offer an opinion on that if you like a Caterham enthusiast's perspective.
- On BlatChat in the regular forums
- On Zoom, 8:00PM on the 2nd Tuesday of each month
- Hopefully we can organise some in-person meetings too
Zoom details will be mailed out to those that have signed up to the IA (see “How Can I Join”).
