Join us for the Electric Vehicle Show!
Are you considering going electric? Are you a student looking for affordable, alternative transportation options. Would you like to learn more about electric vehicles (EVs) from an expert, ask questions, learn about the federal and provincial EV rebate programs, and check out the cars and bikes of local owners and dealers? How about a chance to win an Opus electric bike valued at $2500?
The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) and the TRU Sustainability Office are partnering to host the Electric Vehicle Show on June 23, 2019. Electric vehicles are becoming a common sight on our roads because they are fun to drive, less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, require less maintenance and repair, have good to excellent safety ratings,and are better for the environment.
Who: BCSEA members and the general public are invited to attend. TRUSU reps will be there to discuss alternate transportation options for students. Registration is required. Here is the EventBrite link: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/electric-car-show-tickets-61269003238?aff=eh....
When: Sunday June 23, 2019 from 10am to 2:00pm
Where: Thompson Rivers University, Campus Activity Centre (CAC) Grand Hall. (Parking is free on weekends.)
What: This event will begin indoors with an EV presentation by Brock Nanson at 10:00 am. Brock is an engineer and public speaker who lives in Kamloops, owns two EVs, and has an extensive knowledge about electric vehicles. EV dealers and owners will also speak briefly about their EVs. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask your questions. After the presentations, there will be a complementary barbecue lunch outside and an opportunity to view the EVs in the Campus Commons adjacent to the Campus Activity Centre. You will also get to chat with the dealers and owners and do test-drives. Please note that the event includes only plug-in electric vehicles, not hybrids. The fleet (brought by local dealers and EV owners): Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Ioniq, Kia Sol, the Nissan Leaf, the Smart For Two Electric Drive and several privately-owned plug-in electric vehicles including Tesla S and Tesla 3.
