On the first Saturday of October every year, it’s our practice to sponsor an EV round-up in the Golden Real Estate parking lot. That means that on Saturday, Oct. 2nd, from 3 to 5 pm, there will be 20-plus electric vehicles of all makes and models and their owners — no dealers are invited — ready to show you their cars, let you sit in them, look under the hood (look, ma, no engine!) and perhaps take you around the block.
I’ll be there myself with my silver Tesla Model X, and maybe Rita will bring her red Model S. Visit my website, www.DriveElectricWeek.info to see the EVs that are already registered and to register your own EV if you’ll be bringing one. No hybrids, please, just EVs.
The event happens during the monthly SuperCruise, when our lot is usually filled with gas guzzlers, but not this month! This way, the hundreds of spectators who line South Golden Road to see those gas-powered cars will get the opportunity to see what electric cars are all about and speak with their owners.
You can expect to see EVs from Audi, Nissan, Ford (the new Mustang), Chevrolet, Hyundai, Jaguar and other manufacturers. This is a watershed year for electric transportation with new EVs being introduced every month. Next year you can expect to see the electric Ford F-150 Lightning and maybe even the Tesla Cybertruck.
Our event is also timed to be part of this year’s Metro Denver Green Homes Tour, held the first Saturday of each October, 9 am to 4 pm, to show off net zero energy and otherwise sustainable homes. Golden Real Estate has been a corporate sponsor of the tour for over a decade.
