    • Convenient
    • Easy to maintain
    • Economical
    • Environmentally "Green"

Talk to owners with hundreds of thousands of miles of real world driving experience

 

 LEARN:

All about charging. Members of the Oregon Electric Vehicle Association (OEVA) will have handouts explaining how EV's are charged and lots of first hand experience to share.

    • home charging options (refuel while you sleep - no more gas station lines)
    • public charging
    • what terms like L2, L3, CCS and "Quick Charge" mean

OEVA      

How affordable EV's can be.

    • Leases allow the Federal Tax Credit to be used to effectively reduce the sticker price of the car. There are options below $100 per month!
    • Pre-owned EV's are becoming readily available. Learn what to look for from owners, OEVA members and dealers that specialize in pre-owned EV's.

How you can power your EV (or house) on sunshine.

Solar Power is a great way to power your EV.

SUNSHINE is the new Gasoline!

Highlighted Test Drives:



Nissan LEAF
With available 30 kWh battery, the LEAF can now take you 107 miles (EPA rating). Drive one and you'll understand why you see so many on the road!










BMW i3
the 2017's are available with a 50% bigger battery upping the EPA range to 114 miles! Everything you'd expect from BMW, with loads of tech including carbon fiber to reduce weight.

GREEN STILL MEANS GO.

With inherent BMW performance and undeniable agility, this is an electric vehicle that will change the way you think about driving. The unprecedented use of strong yet lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) makes the BMW i3 one of BMW’s lightest vehicles, contributing to both performance and efficiency. The BMW i3 is truly as innovative as the technology and renewable materials it contains.


Include a comment to Test Drive the i3 when you register and we'll save you a spot!




Audi A3 e-tron!
Quickly becoming one of the most popular PHEV's. An all electric mode will take you around town, and it functions like a hybrid for great economy on longer trips. And they call it the sportback for a reason


Include a comment to Test Drive the A3 e-tron when you register and we'll save you a spot!
