Route 57 - a 2,500 mile road trip zig-zagging across the British Isles - is set to be completed in the all-electric Kia Soul EV. The journey starts next month and aims to take in 57 of the UK and Ireland's best tourist destinations, all while proving that an electric car can be used for long-distance driving.
Route 57 is designed to highlight and promote tourism in the British Isles, showcase some great driving routes, and act as an example that electric vehicle drivers aren't constrained by their car's range.
A total of 2,580 miles will be covered - presuming there are no wrong turnings - as Route 57 starts in Plymouth and ends in Galway, taking in cities, towns and villages en route. Destinations include: the Jurassic Coast, New Forest, Brighton, London, Windsor, the Brecon Beacons, the Cotswolds, the Peak District, Yorkshire Moors, the Pennines, Lake District, Edinburgh, Cairngorms, Loch Ness, the Trossachs, Belfast, Dublin, Cork, and Limerick.
