Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati), the leading EV technology and repowering brand is honoured to be chosen as the sole automotive partner of the highly prestigious Royal Versailles Ball 2022, with its electrified icons playing a key role in the ultra-exclusive charity event.
The Royal Versailles Ball is a private, invitation-only, white tie event which will be held at The Palace of Versailles on 21st May 2022 on the occasion of Queen Victoria’s 203rd birthday. It will be a spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime experience, paying homage to Napoleon III’s original Ball of 1855, which Queen Victoria attended as the guest of honour.
As one of the world’s most environmentally friendly cars, the electric Land Rover Series IIA, a quintessentially British car, aligned with its state-of-the-art Everrati EV powertrain, was deemed the most fitting vehicle to transport VIP guests in sustainable luxury.
An exclusive guest list of 1,100 will attend the Ball, including European royalty, UHNW and HNW individuals, and blue-chip corporations. The Royal Versailles Ball supports three wonderful charity partners, UNICEF UK, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and Street Child UK who work to provide educational programmes in vulnerable communities around the world, as well as support for children and families affected by the war in Ukraine. All proceeds from the event will be donated to these chosen charities. In addition, the Royal Versailles Ball’s Silent Auction – now live – is offering a wide array of luxury goods and experiences to raise added funds: https://www.

The Royal Versailles Ball will welcome a variety of environmentally conscious members of Royal Families as well as UHNWIs seeking the very latest in sustainable luxury driving experiences.”
Everrati’s Land Rover Series IIA – painstakingly refined and tested at the company’s technical centre in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire – incorporates a brand-new EV powertrain courtesy of the company’s expert team of industry specialists from world-leading OEMs. The off-roader’s 60kWh battery pack has a power output of 150bhp and 300Nm of torque reinvigorates the car’s original character, coupled with a true zero-emission range of up to 125 miles.

Everrati buyers are also traditional car collectors with a passion for the latest in automotive technology.
