Sev­er­al events around the state will fea­ture elec­tric vehicles

[DENVER, CO] – Many orga­ni­za­tions will be host­ing events around Col­orado to cel­e­brate Earth Day, and Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado will be there to give Col­oradoans the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expe­ri­ence elec­tric vehi­cles first­hand to encour­age adop­tion for a more earth-friend­ly trans­porta­tion future.

The Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado team will be on hand at these events to answer ques­tions about what it’s like to dri­ve an EV, charg­ers (both at home and on the road), state and fed­er­al tax incen­tives, rebates, and more. 

Each year, it’s becom­ing increas­ing­ly clear that EVs are here to stay and rep­re­sent the future of clean, pol­lu­tion-free dri­ving. A recent sur­vey by Con­sumer Reports and the Union of Con­cerned Sci­en­tists shows that over 60 per­cent of prospec­tive car buy­ers in the U.S. are inter­est­ed in elec­tric vehi­cles; pub­lic inter­est, across geog­ra­phy and income lev­el, is growing. 

“When peo­ple think of ways to take care of our plan­et on Earth Day, switch­ing to an elec­tric vehi­cle usu­al­ly comes to mind,” said Julia Davi­la, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Engage­ment Man­ag­er at Dri­ve Clean Col­orado, the orga­ni­za­tion behind Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado. “But many peo­ple have no expe­ri­ence with EVs and have many ques­tions, from tech­ni­cal aspects to charg­ing logis­tics. These events are a way to have those ques­tions answered by real-world EV own­ers and EV experts.”
