As Manufacturers Gear Up to Build Electric Cars, Come See What’s in Your Future!

LogoBy now it should be clear to you — as it is clear to the automotive industry — that electric vehicles are neither a passing fad nor something that only the wealthy can afford.

Some manufacturers, including BMW and the Volkswagen Group (12 brands from seven European countries) have stated that they will convert their entire fleets to electric propulsion within the next 10 or so years, which makes sense since several countries have indicated they will ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines by 2030 or 2040.

If you haven’t seriously considered owning an electric car, now is a good time to investigate what is already being offered by different manufacturers.

Red Tesla 2Drive Electric Week, presented by Plug-In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association, is your opportunity to meet and talk with current owners (not dealers) of electric cars, get your questions answered, and even take a ride in one or more models.

For the 5th year, the parking lot of Golden Real Estate, at 17695 S. Golden Road, is one of many venues for this event. Already 30 owners are registered to bring their EVs, and another 30 or so people have registered at www.DriveElectricWeek.info to attend on Saturday, Sept. 8th, 10 am to 3 pm.  Denver and Boulder have their events on Wednesday,  Sept. 12th. (Details are on that same website.)
