With the largest EV gathering in Saskatchewan history the Regina, Saskatchewan event was a success! We had 11 electric vehicles and one electric bike on site for viewing and exploration.
We saw close to over 200 people attend the event through the day. This event was hosted by local sponsors, Peavey Mart! The City of Regina Mayor (Michael Fougere) and one additional city councillor (Wade Murray) presented a proclamation declaring the week as National Drive Electric week in for the citizens of Regina!
The people of Regina learned more about the advantages of driving electric cars with the help of the drivers and event representatives. The local media did get a brief story on the evening news!
