Electric vehicles are no longer the way of the future; they are part of the mainstream today.
The “Electric Vehicle (EV) Extravaganza” will be held Saturday March 23 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm at Edward Milne Theatre and Community School and Parking Lot, 6218 Sooke Road.
Members of the Victoria Electric Vehicle Club (VEV), along with EV owners in Sooke, will share the stage at EMCS to compare notes on the joys and the challenges of driving electric vehicles. After a short talk and panel discussion, attendees will be invited to repair to the front parking lot to talk one-on-one with the owners and learn about their individual EVs. There will be a large variety of makes & models to see – with info on both new & used. There will even be an electric bicycle (for all those hills in Sooke!) and a Segway.
“The cars we drive say a lot about us,” says Carol Mallett, from Transition Sooke, who is also an even organizer. “To be an EV driver is to show that we care about the Earth and about the future of our children and our grandchildren. And bonus! These vehicles are amazing to drive, fun to own, and they cost next to nothing to run! They make no noise and give off no dangerous greenhouse gas emissions.”
This event, focusing on viable solutions to help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, is sponsored by Transition Sooke as part of its Transition Sooke Speaker Series.
This will be a fun-for-all event, with information booths and activities for adults and children alike. So bring the whole family!
