John Fruhwirth explains battery technology, costs, methods of mining, and recycling to a small group at the Comox Valley “Move2Electric” car and e-bike event.
Come and sign up on site to drive all-electric SUVs, cross-overs, pickup trucks, and sedans from Ford, GM, Kia, Hyundai, Nissan, VW, and perhaps new entrants to the electric vehicle (EV) market. Take any of a dozen electric bicycles up the steep hill toward Comox Avenue, and feel the effortless pedalling.
Under cover at the Sail Pavilion listen in to speakers explaining how reliable and low maintenance EVs are, how to charge, how EV batteries are made and recycled, how much it costs to “fill up” an EV ($7-$10!), how solar energy can reduce this cost to zero, how easy and comfortable both long-distance rides and transcontinental road trips are, and how electric transportation can help save our planet.
The Comox Valley Electric Vehicle Association (CVEVA) has been promoting the economic and ecological benefits of electrified transportation since 2018. Through monthly member meetings, parades, rallies, and large car and e-bike shows with opportunities to test drive EVs of all kinds, CVEVA members hope to accelerate the adoption of lower-carbon transportation of all kinds.

This event is also con-sponsored by Emotive. Emotive is funded by the Province of British Columbia and offers support to communities and local governments in BC to assist with electric vehicle (EV) outreach. For more information, go to https://www.emotivebc.ca/ .
