Celebrating a Decade of Plugging In!

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. 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, ManitobaEV members are pleased to promote the use of plugin electric vehicles.



EVs are quiet, but EV enthusiasts are not. Zoom! Zoom!

If you are one of the growing number of Manitobans who are interested in the electrification of transportation, you are invited to meet with us. General Meetings are held the last Thursday of every month (except December). During the pandemic, we’re meeting online, via Zoom.

Two pilots, Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association member U. of MB Professor Jill Oakes and U. of Waterloo Professor Paul Parker, are planning to have an all-electric plane cross this country, demonstrating emission-free flights at local airports.

You can learn more about the proposed Electric Aviation Solutions To Decarbonize Canadian Skies project, from Paul, at the

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!

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 transportation electrification 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,
