One of the best ways to learn about electric vehicles involves talking to motorists who already drive one.
That’s exactly what’s available at the Drive Electric Earth Day in Birmingham on Saturday, May 22nd, at The Market at Pepper Place in Birmingham. Electric vehicle owners will be there from 8 a.m. until noon to answer questions while promoting electric vehicle awareness, technology, affordability and other merits attached to EVs.
A selection of electric vehicles will be on display, providing anyone with an up-close look at the fun vehicles that are cheaper to maintain than conventional gas-powered cars, better for the environment and help create American jobs.
“Anyone thinking about buying a new vehicle has to consider electric,” said Mark Bentley, Executive Director of the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, one of the event’s sponsors. “Many people still have questions about EVs, and the people who own and drive them have the answers. This is an easy way to learn more about these electric vehicles that give off zero emissions, are economical to drive and contribute to the creation of high-paying jobs right here in our state.”
