EV spectacular celebrates the diversity and capability of electric vehicles available today
The Gocycle G4 has set the inaugural e-bike lap record at Brands Hatch, former home of the British Grand Prix.
Gocycle lapped the famous 1.2-mile Indy circuit in 3mins 19 secs as part of an all-electric spectacular that saw e-mobility specialists Move Electric set seven production EV records simultaneously.
Records were also established for an electric production car, an electric van, an electromod car conversion, an electric moped, an electric scooter and electric skateboard.
Move Electric’s record-breaking feat aimed to celebrate the diversity of electric mobility and the capability of electric vehicles today.
James Attwood, Move Electric editor, said: “E-mobility is a broad church and Move Electric wanted to celebrate the incredible diversity of vehicles available by setting lap records on the same asphalt used by Touring Cars, Superbikes and even, in the past, Formula 1 racers. What it showed was just how capable, rapid and fun the latest generation of electric vehicles can be – and there really is something for everyone. If you thought Nigel Mansell was brave

The Gocycle G4 was well equipped for the job with its automotive-inspired design features including built-in traction control and bespoke MotoGP-inspired treaded tyres that are infused with silica compound for superior grip and sure-footed handling.
Gocycle Engineer Tom Dowrick took to the saddle of the G4 for the record-breaking lap, flattening the steep elements of the circuit with the aid of the powerful G4drive™ electric motor.
Gocycle’s proprietary G4drive™ provides a smooth and quiet ride while delivering more torque and low-speed start capability – all within a class-leading compact package.
Tom Dowrick, Gocycle Engineer, said: “Riding around Brands Hatch on our Gocycle e-bike was an awesome experience, something I’ll remember for a long time. It was amazing to have set the inaugural e-bike lap record at such an iconic circuit. I’m very pleased I was on an e-bike as those hills would have been a real
