Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive @ the Earth Day Fair

April 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Is an electric vehicle in your driving future? 

There’s only one way to find out–take an electric vehicle for a spin at the Earth Day Fair this year!

The Ride and Drive will take place in the parking lot between Troy Field and The Environmental Center’s Learning Garden.

Come check out a variety of electric vehicle models and learn about Central Oregon’s second Electric Vehicle Group Buy Program.

Forth Mobility will be joining us. Their mission is to advance electric, smart, and shared mobility and they are a wealth of information about all things electric vehicles, including workplace charging. They have a fleet of electric vehicles waiting for you to take them out on a test drive so if you can’t find what you’re looking for at this event, be sure to check out their electric vehicle showcase in Portland where you can test drive many different EVs all from one location.

Electric Vehicles available for driving will include:

  • 2018 Nissan LEAF
  • 238-mile range Chevy Bolt (thanks to Forth for bringing this car to the event!)

Other vehicles to check out (and talk to their owners about) will include:

  • Nissan LEAF
  • Chevy Bolt
  • Ford Focus Electric

These local EV owners are a great resource to get your questions answered. They will be on-hand to share their experiences and answer your questions about EV living!

Are you an electric vehicle owner who would like to bring your car to show and answer questions about EV ownership? We’d love to have you! We’re looking Tesla, Kia, BMW, and VW owners. Please email Lindsey

In addition to electric vehicles, there will be lots to check out at the Earth Day Fair! Enjoy live music from Broken Down Guitars and a street fair featuring local businesses, nonprofits, and food carts. Head over to Troy Field for the Kid’s Zone with interactive games for all ages. Our garden will be buzzing with activities, a Free Little Library, and more.
