MEVA Attends World Of Wheels 2014

MEVA is very proud to attend Autorama’s World Of Wheels March 14 to 16, 2014.

World Of Wheels is “America’s Premier Custom Car Show Series”, filled with many very nicely finished classic cars. It is attended by very serious car enthusiasts, and the admiring public.

MEVA is very pleased to be accepted as part of the show. Electric vehicles, we feel are the wave of the future. We also feel that EV’s characteristic “100 torque at zero RPM” will appeal to many drivers interested in serious car performance.

If you are interested in cars in general, or electric vehicles, please be sure to attend World of Wheels.

World Of Wheels will be held at the Winnipeg Convention Center, Friday to Sunday, March 14 to 16, 2014.  Hours are:

Friday:      3 to 10 pm
Saturday:  10 am to 10 pm
Sunday:    10 am to 6 pm

When MEVA attended World Of Wheels, it was a great experience.

The Nissan Leaf did stick out quite a bit from the rest of the vehicles. It was not a classic car. Not a fast muscle car. Not internal combustion. No expensive repaint, or even a nice wax job.

But we had lots of interest. Of the 30K estimated visitors, hundreds of visitors came by our booth. We gave out at least 400 invitations to MEVAFest in September.

Most had never seen an electric vehicle before, so it was a new experience for many. They were quite intrigued when we told them about the benefits of EVs: 160 km range, 100% torque, low operating expenses, very little maintenance, Manitoba emissions 50 times cleaner than internal combustion, and other benefits.
