Register to attend this FREE and informative event. Electric Vehicle (EV) owners will show you their cars, share personal driving experiences and answer your questions. Some will give test rides. Learn more from those who know best...drivers who've already made the transition to electric!  EV's are quiet, fun, practical and offer outstanding performance. They also benefit the environment and communities by reducing tailpipe air pollution and overall global warming emissions.  

In addition to the dozens of EV owner cars, dealers from Chevrolet, Chrysler, Fiat, Honda, Porsche, Nissan, Tesla, and Volvo have models to test drives. Come test drive the new Tesla 3, tour the new BYD all electric 23' motor coach, and see the exotic Karma Revero. Vendor displays and demos will show EV charger options, explain cost-saving utility programs, how to store solar energy to power your home and charge your EV and more!  

EV owners: register and bring your car. The location has four free ChargePoint outlets.
