Event Report

We had 17 different EVs featured with 14 different types of cars, and multiple models of Leafs and Teslas. We also featured two electric bikes and the first electric school bus in the state of Maine, offered for display by our partners at MDI High School, as well as some EV cooking demonstrations. 

Event Description


In celebration of National Drive Electric Week, A Climate to Thrive, along with our partners, the Bar Harbor Task Force on the Climate Emergency, the Tremont Sustainability Committee, and the Mount Desert Sustainability Committee, welcomes you to attend a free "EV Expo" in Bar Harbor, Maine on September 30th, 2023, from 11 am to 1 pm. 

Local owners will display their plug-on electric vehicles of all kinds, from the Ford Lightning to the Nissan Leaf. Come see the variety firsthand, and get your real EV ownership, reliability, range, charging, and technical questions answered by the people who own and drive them. There may even be a chance to get to take a ride!

The event will also feature updates on efforts to expand public EV charging in three island towns. In addition to neighbors excited to share their EV journeys, the Expo will also give attendees the chance to hear from invited local plug-in and electric car and bike dealers to help you learn about new EV offerings, costs, incentives, rebates, and how to purchase. Beyond traditional EVs,  hear from a new zero-emission rental service in town allowing you to explore the area in the very near future, and tour the island's Electric School Bus!
