Event Description


Hello and Welcome to the 1st "Touch an EV" event in Oxford, CT. Our goal is to help spread the word about EVs and Plug-in Hybrids by having local owners network and have conversations with other people in the community in an informal way.

Most people have an apprehensive curiosity about EVs in general. Those that own an EV or a PHEV, love them, love talking about them and sharing their experiences. The owners are often times the most knowledgeable about their vehicle, what they wished they knew before, what they know now, and where it looks the technology is heading.  Personal word of mouth is often the best way to encourage others to get an EV or PHEV when the time is right. 

At this event, there will be owners with their various vehicles and the more the merrier! We will also have at least a Chevy BoltEV and a Chevy Volt available to test drive. We are still working on getting a Nissan Leaf there to test drive.  There will also be information about all the various types of EVs and PHEVs available today.  And we hope there will be an announcement about new charging stations that is currently in development!
