Event Report

Held at our annual Fall Fair, we joined the traditional Classic Car Show in a new "Green Class", winning an award from the Fair organisers. Over the weekend period, public interest was continual in spite of intermittent rain. It is clear from many comments that more Electric Vehicles will be acquired as a result of our show. We will certainly participate in the Fair next year.

Event Description


Electric vehicles will be featured at the fair for the third year. Salt Spring Island has, at last count, 56 all-electric cars and boasts the highest ownership per capita in BC, if not Canada! Join us to find out why driving electric is so popular.

Test drives in a Nissan LEAF will be offered from 2 to 4 pm each day at Moby's Pub parking lot on Upper Ganges Rd.
