With recent announcements about federal EV initiatives, it is more important than ever to learn about driving electric including how to go on long trips in an EV, installing charging at condos and apartments, where charging is available locally, the cost of charging on the go and at home, and how driving electric mitigates the effects of Climate Change.

More than 60 vehicles will be on display. Most of the cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, and e-bikes will be brought by their owners who are looking forward to answering the public’s questions about driving electric. There will be some vehicles brought by dealerships as well. The event will highlight the climate, clean air, and cost savings benefits provided by driving electric. Among the newer display vehicles is a conversion of a 1998 Jaguar XJR to show how gasoline cars can be converted to battery electric power. Attendance at the event is free.

BGE, the Supercharged Headline Sponsor, will present information about its EVsmart® program and will display a number of its electric vehicles.
