Electric Vehicles: fun for EVeryone! Want to know how? Join us!

Over five thousand vehicles registered in our province have electric motors. More and more Manitobans are becoming interested in electric-powered cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, boats. . .  A few savvy Manitobans have converted various internal-combustion-powered vehicles to electric power. Some have purchased electric vehicles (EVs) which were manufactured in factories. Others are contemplating an EV purchase or conversion. Some don’t own a motorized vehicle, but, like every EV enthusiast, they promote greater public and private use of clean, energy-efficient, electric vehicles.
