A number of local Erie environmental organizations have teamed up to promote this clean energy EV show. We expect to have over a dozen owners and dealers present their plug-in EVs for display and demonstration, and share their experiences with the public. Some owners may offer to give visitors short demo drives, and dealers can schedule later test drives at their dealerships. It's a chance to learn the reality of EV ownership, kick the tires and get the feel of sitting in the different models.
There will be a a Presque Isle State Park Ranger, displaying a Zero Pursuit EV Motorcycle. The EV’s will then meet at the Tom Ridge Center 301 Peninsula Dr. Erie, PA 16505 at 4 pm for a Green Drive Escorted by the Park Ranger, riding the Zero Pursuit Motorcycle. The drive will encompass all of the Presque Isle State Park and last approximately 50 minutes.
The event is free and family-friendly, and some healthy snack food and drinks will be provided. Various environmental information tables and vendors will be available, and there is plenty of visitor parking.
There are currently 61 attendees registered.
