The goal of the project is to recruit people from all over Ireland with a range of different lifestyles and commutes to get plugged in and share their electric driving experience with the nation.
This year's Great Electric Drive received a very positive response from the public, with over 20,000 applications, which highlights the high level of interest in electric vehicles.
The selected ecar ambassadors will trial the latest range of electric vehicles, which have been supplied by car manufacturers, including BMW, Nissan, Renault, Citroen and Mitsubishi.
Twenty-four people will trial an ecar for a period of four months and research will be conducted during the trial.
