Celebrating a Decade of Plugging In!

Compared to vehicles powered by internal-combustion motors, electric-powered 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 proponents formed the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association. Since then, many men and women of all ages, in all regions of the province, have joined the Association, to promote the use of plugin electric vehicles.


2021 manitobaEVfest!

Sunshine and blue skies greeted a lot of folks who showed off their plugin-electric vehicles at IKEA, on Saturday, September 25th. After almost two and a half years of pandemic-induced isolation, it was great fun to mask up, to help curious Manitobans discover the many benefits of going electric. Some drove considerable distances to participate. In addition to longtime friends, the 2021 manitobaEVfest attracted new members; over a dozen EV enthusiasts and 3 companies, Powertec Electric, EasyEV and GB Agencies, officially joined the Association. Also, drawing attention to the festival were high-profile displays by the teams from Nott Autocorp and Waverley Mitsubishi (Vickar Automotive Group). Congratulations and a big THANKS to everyone who made the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association’s 10th plugin EV festival a success.

Plugging in since 2010



$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 $2,000 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 these and the many other benefits of going EV. Consequently,

  • hundreds of Manitobans have purchased electric vehicles (EVs) 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 are a proponent of electric-powered transportation you are welcome in the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association.

Yes, hundreds of Manitobans have switched to plugin vehicles. However, hundreds of thousands more could switch to fully-electric vehicles if fast-charge stations were strategically located in all regions of this province. Eight other provinces are much, much further ahead than Manitoba in their drive to accelerate the electrification of transportation. To help Manitoba catch up,
