Event Report

We had great weather and a great turnout at the Calgary event. IKEA was kind enough to reserve a portion of their parking lot for us, and they even gave us some space right at the front door to park a Nissan Leaf. We got a lot of attention at the door, and from there people were directed to visit us in the parking lot where we had several EV's and owners answering questions and discussing just how easy life with an EV can be.

Event Description


The 'Electric Revolution' is coming to our roadways! Most of the world's largest auto manufacturers have plans to electrify their fleet of vehicles in the coming years. 

As part of National Drive Electric Week, the Electric Vehicle Association of Alberta is excited to return to Ikea to host our fourth annual Calgary event! Come learn all about Electric Vehicles and talk to local Albertain owners. 

Embracing the 'Electric Revolution', our host, Ikea, offers the public their 2 general purpose EV chargers.

A wide range of electric cars are expected to be on display, including the ever exciting Tesla Model S and Model X, the pioneering Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Smart Fortwo Electric, as well as possibly some conversion cars (started life as gas powered and then converted to electric).
