If you’re still pondering whether to head down to Resorts World Sentosa to check out the show, here are 5 reasons why you should make the trip.

Be the first to see the BMW iX in Singapore

The BMW iX is the Bavarian carmaker’s flagship EV product, and it is making its Singapore debut at EV Weekend. This means that you’ll be among the first to see this highly advanced electric SUV ahead of everyone else. You can’t miss it too; the iX greets you the very moment you step through the RWS Forum’s main entrance. More details on the car’s pricing and launch here.

Take pictures with the sexy Audi E-Tron GT

Audi’s sleek-looking E-Tron GT will be on display at EV Weekend, and judging from the reaction from the opening weekend of the show so far, it is fast becoming a crowd favourite for photo opportunities. Here’s your chance to get up close and personal with this sexy electric sports sedan, and make your friends jealous with your Instagram-worthy snap.

Find out more about Mercedes-EQ’s electric revolution

Mercedes-EQ is showcasing two of its latest EVs at the show, namely the EQA and EQC. They represent the brand’s approach of offering advanced EV tech with familiar Mercedes qualities, and if you fancy an EV with a three-pointed star up front, then both the EQA and EQC are definitely the cars for you at EV Weekend.

Check out the EVs that are priced for the mainstream

EVs are no longer the preserve of premium carmakers, and at EV Weekend, you can check out the EVs that are priced and targeted at mainstream car buyers. MG is bringing its ZS EV SUV and 5 EV station wagon to the show, while Kia is showcasing its Niro EV crossover. There’s also the all-electric Mini Cooper SE, which should appeal to the chic and fashionable set.

Test drive your favourite EV from the show

The best part of EV Weekend is that you don’t just get to see these cars, but you can experience them for yourself too. Simply book a test drive slot over at EVWeekend.sg, and show up at your chosen timing between 10 to 12 December to take your favourite EV out for a spin. Word of warning though: test drive slots are filling up fast, so be sure to put your name down ASAP to avoid losing out.
