Electric Avenue returns to the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard for 2023. The goal? Get thousands of motoring and motorsport fans up close and personal with the latest and greatest electric cars, get them enthused and get them educated. The line-up on display this year, like the electric car market, is more eclectic than ever. EVs of all kinds, from tiny cars and city cars, to the biggest SUVs, luxury cars, super sportscars and even restored classics, are on display.


Driving enthusiasts can drink in the details of the one-off all-electric Alpine A110 E-ternité prototype, as well as the new Charge ‘67 by Charge Cars, an all-carbon all-electric beauty in the image of the beloved 1967 Mustang Fastback. There’s also the fabulous Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo to show sportscar fans that electric-powered with a raised ride height can still be super cool.

Hot new electric SUVs in attendance include the refreshingly bulky new Kia EV9, the svelte Polestar 3, and the sporty new Maserati Grecale Folgore, as well as the new Ford Explorer and Renault Megane E-Tech. Coming from China, the BYD Dolphin, ORA Funky Cat, Nio ET5 and the HiPhi Y, the latter being an SUV complete with rear Gullwing doors. 


Even hot hatches are being electrified in 2023, with the Abarth 500e Turismo Convertible joining the new Smart #1 Brabus. Of course, the Alpine A290_β prototype would be on-stand, but it’ll of course be in action on the Hill.

Of course, it’s not just these excellent cars you can learn about in Electric Avenue, you can learn about how to charge, maintain and overall get the best out of an EV. Pay Electric Avenue a visit at the 2023 Festival of Speed and learn more about the latest in electric motoring.

The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place from 13th-16th July. Be sure to check back here at Goodwood Road & Racing to keep up to date with all of the latest news and announcements.
