Electric Vehicle Roundup Scheduled for April 2nd in Golden  

    Every April and October, Golden Real Estate hosts an electric vehicle roundup as part of Drive Electric Earth Day and National Drive Electric Week. Although we’ve moved our real estate office to downtown Golden, we still own our former location at 17695 S. Golden Road, and we’ll host the EV roundup in that parking lot, just like last April and October.

    We’re seeking EV owners who would like to display their EVs from 3 to 6 pm on Saturday, April 2nd. We’d particularly like to see some of the new models, such as Rivian’s pickup truck, Ford’s Mustang Mach E, and Volvo’s XC40 Recharge. You can register your vehicle online at www.DriveElectricWeek.info

    If you are not an EV owner and would like to talk to existing EV owners (like me) about their experience, you can register at the same site as an attendee, or simply show up on April 2nd.

   We intentionally schedule our EV roundups during the SuperCruise event which happens on the first Saturday of each month from April through October. That event attracts hundreds of gas-powered classic and other cars and thousands of spectators. Our parking lot is on that popular stretch of South Golden Road and exposes those owners and spectators to the future of transportation — electric vehicles. See you there!

Come to the Electric Vehicle Roundup This Saturday, Oct. 2nd, 3-5 pm

As I write, 40 people have registered at www.DriveElectricWeek.info to attend this annual event, and 19 of them are bringing their EVs. This “EV Roundup” takes place in the Golden Real Estate parking lot at 17695 S. Golden Road. You’ll find every model of Tesla, plus EVs from Nissan, Chevrolet, BMW, Mini, Kia and Hyundai. We’re still looking for people to bring their VW ID.4, Mustang Mach-E, Jaguar I-Pace, Volvo XC40 Recharge, Porsche Taycan, Polestar 2 and a Rivian pickup or SUV. We’d also love to see electric motorcycles from Zero and Harley-Davidson. If someone you know has one of those exciting new EVs, please ask him/her to register at the website above. We have lots of swag to give away — water bottles, face masks, sanitizer, t-shirts, and back packs — on the registration table.  We have 5 handouts that you can view at www.EV-Handouts.info.

Charge are hosting “Rise and Ride Five Points” at the DMV office, 2855 Tremont Place, Denver, on Saturday, 7 to 10 a.m.  They’re offering rides and information about all the EVs currently available in Colorado.  Free coffee & donuts, too!

On Sunday, 11am to 3pm, you can attend the Longmont EV Fair at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont, sponsored by Sustainable Resilient Longmont. They’re offering test drives and rides to fully vaccinated and masked attendees. They have 35 EVs registered so far, including most of those EVs we’re still hoping to see at our event in Golden.
