According to the registration site www.DriveElectricWeek.info, 44 attendees and 18 EV owners have registered for this event held on S. Golden Road during SuperCruise.
What excites me about this year’s event is that The Net Zero Store will be up and running in our former real estate office whose parking lot is the venue for the EV roundup. Attendees interested in all aspects of sustainability, not just EVs, will be able to come inside and chat with experts about improving their home’s energy efficiency.
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!
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.infoto 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.
Golden Real Estate is pleased to be hosting a free Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic in our parking lot today, Saturday, July 3, 2021, during the monthly SuperCruise event. The clinic closes at 7 pm. If you haven’t been fully vaccinated yet, please come by! It’s free!
