Electric Technology is Ready for YOU at the Longmont Electric Vehicle Fair
Presented by Colorado Renewable Energy Society
Sunday, October 3rd, 11am until 3pm
Boulder County Fairgrounds, Longmont, Colorado
The eleventh annual National Drive Electric Week, a coast-to-coast celebration of electric vehicles (EVs), is being held September 25–October 3.
Locally, the Longmont Electric Vehicle Fair will help raise the awareness, benefits and availability of plug-in vehicles. Over 40 electric car owners will be sharing their cars and experience alongside used EV dealers, new EV dealers, and experts that can demystify the electric car ownership experience.
This fun event will include opportunities for test drives and rides, discussion panels with EV owners and experts, electric bike demos, a variety of vendors , food trucks, music, and door prizes.
“Electric vehicles have improved enormously over the last five years, these cars can be fun, efficient and surprisingly convenient to drive,” said Ryan Schutz, Executive Director of Sustainable Resilient Longmont. “The Longmont Electric Vehicle Fair is an opportunity to learn how electric vehicle technology is ready for you.”
There are now more than 1.5 million EVs on the road in the United States, and a recent survey by Consumer Reports and the Union of Concerned Scientists showed that more than 60% of prospective car buyers in the U.S. are interested in electric vehicles. There are now more than 40 models available in the U.S., with many of the newer models having a range of 200-300 miles or more.
Electric Vehicle Dealers at the EV Fair include:
Green Eyed Motors
Small Planet eBikes
Freedom Folding Electric Bike
