- Do you own – or are you interested in owning – an electric vehicle?
- Want to help make the transition to fossil fuel-free living?
Join us Saturday, Oct. 1, between 12 noon and 3 pm at the First Congregational Church parking lot, 4515 SW West Hill Road, to hear about the real-life experiences and benefits of going by electric car, bike, or scooter. See a variety of models, ask questions of local EV owners, and go for a test ride!
EV owners who would like to “show and tell” about their vehicles are encouraged to pre-register for the event at https://driveelectricweek.org/event?eventid=3450.
Saturday’s local event, sponsored by the Sustainability Coalition’s Transportation Action Team, is part of National Drive Electric Week, a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. Nationally, there are currently more than 40 electric vehicle models available for sale, and many major automakers offer plug-in electric vehicles that can go up to 300 miles on a single charge – about 9 times more than the average person’s daily commute!
Making the transition to fossil fuel-free vehicles is critical to meeting local, state, and national climate goals. “Accelerate the transition to electric vehicles” is the third highest action priority in the Buildings & Energy section of the Corvallis Climate Action Plan. For those who have been thinking about making the transition to an electric vehicle, the upcoming EV Show & Tell is a chance to see how to be part of the solution to climate change.
