Acterra’s Electric Vehicle (EV) workshop on June 9th provided a wealth of information to help you get started on the your journey to go electric

With so many EVs available, their driving ranges improving, ownership and operating costs at or below gas-powered vehicles and significant environmental benefits, more than ever it’s a no-brainer to “go EV” with your next car purchase!

The workshop presented all the key information you’ll need to make the transition to an electric vehicle:

  • What is an EV and why drive and EV?
  • What are the environmental and health benefits of switching to EVs?
  • What are some other the benefits of an EV?
  • What is the cost-of-ownership advantages of an EV and how does it compare to a gas powered car?
  • How to charge your EV?
  • What charging infrastructure is available?
  • What vehicles are available and what is coming soon?
  • What incentives are available to buy an EV?
