Electric Car Test Drives

June 5 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Free

Gas prices got you down? 

Of course, we’d prefer that you take active transportation or public transit. But if you’re still looking for an excellent alternative, how about an electric vehicle (EV)?

eMERGE Guelph is hosting EV test drives and EV101 classes (registration required) that make you eligible for up to $2,000 used EV rebates and $5,000 in new EV rebates. All this for free with our friends from PlugnDrive and Alectra/Guelph Hydro

Test drive one of three EVs on site and attend an EV 101 seminar. This one hour short course looks at everything you need to know to buy an EV, new or used. Taking part in both a test drive and EV 101 class will also make you eligible for up to a $2,000 in used EV rebates from PlugnDrive.

Electric Car Test Drives (registration only on site)

10:00am – 5:00pm 

Sunday, June 5th, 2022

42 Carden St Guelph. 

 

Up to 8,000 new vehicles are sold in Guelph each year, while very few are electric. Every EV that’s purchased (instead of a gas or diesel vehicle) reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 3 tonnes per year. That’s massive.

All of this will help you understand:

  • The financial and environmental benefits of Electric Vehicles (EVs)
  • Key considerations when purchasing an EV
  • Understanding EV charging public and private
  • Lessons learned through case study examination
  • How Plug’n Drive’s Used EV and Scrappage Program works

There are two different EV rebates available:

 

Come downtown and check out different EV models, chat with EV owners. Bring your questions about buying, driving, and owning an electric car.

“WHY IS eMERGE PUSHING FOR EVs?

There are many ways to fight climate change.

But when it comes to transportation planning our approach at eMERGE is quite clear. Society has to take an approach that prioritizes 1) walking and then 2) cycling followed by 3) electrified public transit and finally 4) electrified personal transportation (cars).
