In 2018, Accelerate Kootenays brought the experience of driving an electric car to communities throughout Kootenays! We look forward to more EV-adventures this summer, stay tuned for more information.
Here's a peak at what we were up to last year:
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!
Right from the start, our partners BC Hydro and FortisBC were on board to support. Just like us, they want to help Kootenay residents gain the environmental and economic benefits of electric transportation.
And so was born the #RuralEV Mobile Showcase:
