Electric Car Curious?
At this year’s Sockeye Run Car Show and Shine, get a glimpse of the future. The inaugural Electric Vehicle Showcase features 8 different plug-in electric vehicles, along with both owners and dealers available to share their wealth of information and experience with you. Given the increasing interest in electric vehicles, many drivers want to know if their particular needs and driving style would suit an electric vehicle now or at some point in the future. This is an opportunity to get independent advice and separate fact from fiction. In addition to the environmental benefits, find out why electric vehicles save money and are so much fun to drive.
Does an electric vehicle have enough range to meet my needs? What about finding a charging station? How much will I save on gas? What are the maintenance costs? How about replacing the battery? Can the electric grid support a sudden increase in the number of electric vehicles? Is it really going to significantly reduce my household greenhouse gas emissions? Get the answers to these questions and more from electric vehicle drivers who began with the same questions.
The Showcase is being organized by Plug-in Richmond
