#RuralEV Mobile Showcase

In 2018, with support from BC Hydro and FortisBC, we began a journey to bring the experience of driving an electric car to people throughout the Kootenays. We are excited to continue this mission through the summer of 2019.

EV test drives

In some urban areas, consumers now have "EV Showcase" centres where they can talk to knowledgeable, brand agnostic people about electric vehicles and even do test drives. We loved this idea: what a great way to get people familiar with EVs and have all their questions answered! But given the expanse of the Kootenay region, a centralized site doesn't make sense. So, we thought, let's put the showcase on wheels!

And so was born the #RuralEV Mobile Showcase.

We are excited to continue bringing the experience of driving an EV to people throughout the Kootenays this summer. We will be at events and festivals across the region, and will be planning stand-alone EV test drive days, as well. If you are part of an organization that would like to explore offering EV test drives to your staff or members, please get in touch! accelerate@communityenergy.bc.ca

We would like to thank BC Hydro, FortisBC and Emotive for supporting our journeys this summer.
