What we do

Founded in 1973, the Battery Vehicle Society (BVS) is Britain’s foremost and longest-running Electric Vehicle (EV) society. Its members are spread throughout the UK and beyond; and their electric vehicle interests encompass production electric and hybrid vehicles, one-off builds and fossil-fuel to electric conversions. Drawn from industry, academia and the general public, BVS members include consumers with past or current production EVs, amateur or professional EV constructors and converters, academics, car manufacturers, battery and BMS producers, etc. A Member’s vehicle might be an electric or hybrid van, car, motorbike, scooter, tricycle, bicycle or even a remote-controlled model. The BVS facilitates the sharing of information on all aspects of the past, present and potential future of Battery Vehicles. BVS members regularly attend shows and events throughout the year with their own vehicles (some bought and some built) in order to promote the interests of the society as well as educate the general public about the environmental and financial benefits of owning and driving EVs. As well as promoting EVs, the BVS encourages and assists with the development, construction and operation of EVs by professionals and amateurs, and can advise on the purchase of a pure-EV or hybrid. Some of our members are also active ‘EVangelists’, campaigning about EV-related issues. The BVS also encourages the preservation of historic EVs and maintains records of the history of electric vehicles to date.
