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.
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.
