Route 57 zigzags its ways through England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland stopping at 57 must-see destinations along the way. It’s been put together with the local knowledge of Jurys Inn Hotels and will be driven in a Kia Soul EV on 6-26 April. This is all in association with DriveElectric and ZapMap.

But who’s driving?

Now this is the exciting bit, for me, at least. I’m going to be driving the full 2,580 mile route in the official Route 57 car!

I’ll be exploring the UK and Ireland’s most beautiful destinations, getting to know this striking car and I’ll be filming it all as I go.

Follow Route 57 on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates as I continue to plan and pack. Once the trip starts on the 6th, you’ll be treated to plenty of photos, little videos, EV tales and an insight into British and Irish culture.

Take a look at for all the details.
