EVs IN MOTION : Ride & Drive + EV Display -- See, ride in and drive the cars of the future... today! 

See the EVs 
- Take a close look at a variety of personally-owned production EVs
- Get straight answers to your questions from owners
- Find out what EV ownership is really like 
- Educational event, no sales
- Free event, volunteer-"driven"

You may find EV owners are very passionate when sharing how easy, cheap, and fun it is to operate an EV

Ride in an EV 
- Take a ride as a passenger in an EV driven by an owner/volunteer on a 5-10 minute drive, to *feel* the instant torque, quiet ride, and smooth acceleration, all making for a better drive or ride experience.
- Free event, volunteer-"driven"

Test Drive an EV 
Take the wheel* and feel what it's like to drive an EV!  (Test drivers must be 25 years of age or older, present a valid BC driver’s license, and sign a waiver)
- Free event, volunteer-"driven"

* Subject to cars being available

WARNING! EV test drives often turn ordinary motorists into EV fanatics.

Not all EVs displayed will be available for test drives.

Test Drives are very popular and we have limited numbers of cars available, so there may be lineups.

Entire event is volunteer-"driven", and is free to attend and participate -- we can't say there's "no charge" because, well, all the cars have plenty of charge.

Thank you to School District 61 and Central Middle School principal Topher Macintosh for their support in providing the site for our green event.

We expect to have EVs from nearly all manufacturers - Tesla Models S & X, Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul, Chevrolet Volt (working on Bolt), BMW i3, Smart EV, Hyundai Ioniq.
