MANITOBA ELECTRIC VEHICLE ASSOCIATION

MANITOBA ELECTRIC VEHICLE ASSOCIATION

Plugging in for more than eleven years!

Compared to internal-combustion-powered vehicles, electric vehicles are better for the environment, less expensive to operate and much more fun to drive!

For these reasons and more, on November 16, 2010, sixteen forward-thinking, environmentally-conscious EV enthusiasts formed the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association.

Since then, many men and women of all ages, in all regions of the province, have joined this Association (manitobaEV), to promote the use of plugin electric vehicles.

Also, you are invited to connect with other EV enthusiasts, the second Wednesday of every month, for EV Talk. In these informal, online get-togethers, there’s no discussion of politics or strategic planning, just plenty of conversation about our shared passion, all types of plug-in electric vehicles!

Could EVs become as popular as hockey?

Danny Schur is a Juno Award-winning composer, producer and writer for stage and screen.  Based on his award-winning musical Strike! his movie musical Stand! was number one at the Canadian box office in 2019.  Few people can entertain us, by simply stating facts, as well as this manitobaEV member.  To discover Danny’s truth about EVs (and hockey?) click on this picture of his sporty white electric car.

$ave, $ave, $ave and Protect the Environment

Manitoba could save $billions, annually, while eliminating the largest source of greenhouse gases emitted in this province.

By switching to a battery-electric vehicle the average Manitoba driver saves over $2,500 per year in reduced fuel and maintenance costs, while protecting the environment. To learn more, click here.

Members of ManitobaEV have been spreading the word about the many benefits of going electric. Consequently,

  • many Manitobans have purchased battery-electric vehicles from brand-name auto makers;

  • several savvy Manitobans have converted a variety of internal-combustion-powered vehicles to electric power;

  • more Manitobans are contemplating an EV purchase or conversion;

  • even Manitobans who don’t own motor vehicles, are enthusiastically promoting greater public and private use of these cleaner, quieter, more energy-efficient vehicles.

Whether you drive a vehicle or not, if you’re a proponent of electric-powered transportation you’re welcome in the MANITOBA ELECTRIC VEHICLE ASSOCIATION.

More than 1,400 Manitobans drive battery-electric vehicles. However, many thousands could switch to these emission-free vehicles if fast-chargers were strategically located in all regions of Manitoba. Eight other provinces are much farther ahead in their drive to accelerate the electrification of transportation. To help Manitoba catch up,
