On Saturday 10th December and Sunday 11th December, you and your family can meet Santa himself to find out if you’ve been naughty or nice, learn about Santa’s transition to electric and get creative in the elves’ workshop!

We’ll also be spreading some festive cheer with hot chocolate, marshmallows and biscuits provided throughout the day.

And if you have one, it’s time to dig out that festive jumper!

Last year, Arnold Clark launched its first Innovation Centre for those interested or curious about EVs.


The £5 million site opened on Dumbarton Road in Glasgow’s West End with the aim of educating visitors about the benefits of alternative fuel vehicles and why they are becoming so important.

There are more than 60 vehicles on site available to test-drive, from plug-in and self-charging hybrids to fully electric vehicles.

You can also learn about the different types of charging and generous government tax and grants available.

We have also recently opened a second Innovation Centre in Stafford, England.
