Event Report

Despite an unseasonably rainy day, over 350 people enjoyed a day of FUN at the “Sechelt Is Plugged In Event” in Sechelt, BC. Held on the shore of the picturesque Porpoise Bay, many people enjoyed a “Clean Getaway” from Vancouver. EV models on display included Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S and Roadster, Ford Focus, Mistubishi MiEV, Smart Electric, Kia Soul, Shocke e-Bikes, Private conversions and a Segway!

Everyone enjoyed playing games including Human Foosball and Giant Jenga and great food, beverages and live music! Test drives were popular – in cars (thanks, Nissan and Tesla), on bikes (thanks, Shocke Bikes) and on a Segway!

The organizers are already looking forward to next year!

Event Description

 

ROAD TRIP - SECHELT!  

We look forward to hosting EV owners from across British Columbia, including members of VEVA, in Sechelt. 

Come to the Sunshine Coast on Saturday, September 19th or make a weekend of it!   There will be lots to do - fly a drone, ride a Segway, enjoy the beach, play some games, have some great food, talk to other electric vehicle enthusiasts and (most importantly) have FUN!   (Also, many of our EV owners will happily provide rides for those who want to learn more about the excitement of owning an EV!)

We have over 10 public and private Level 2 chargers and a Level 3 charger!  (We have the most chargers per capital of any community in BC - we think!) 

Volunteers to help organize the Sechelt Drive Electric Weekend are needed and very welcome! Use the Contact button above if you want to help or have any questions.
