Victoria, BC V8X 4A3
The DriveElectricVictoria event yesterday included 18 volunteer EVs representing nearly all automakers: Leaf, Soul, Tesla, Smart EV, BMW i3, Volt, MiEV, and a Toyota RAV4 EV. A big thank you to all the EV owners (and a few non-owners) who came out and volunteered their time to help educate people.
- Relaxed, positive, friendly atmosphere: multiple guests commented on how informative the event was — in fact a few people stated that they were now convinced their next car would absolutely be an EV
- Two families came out specifically because they are in the market now for an EV and felt the event was extremely timely
- Multiple guests commented on how much information they received in a non-intimidating way, and in what they termed was a “truthful environment".
- Weather much better than last year!!
