The City of Barrie is giving residents and visitors the chance to learn more about electric vehicles (EVs) and take a test drive.

The Discover EV events will be held on select dates in July at the Spirit Catcher parking lot (20 Simcoe Street). The official launch will take place on July 1. 

The Discover EV events are hosted in partnership with Plug ‘N Drive and supported by a grant from Natural Resources Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative. Attendees can expect: 

  • Interactive learning displays.
  • An EV test drive activity in some of the latest EV models.
  • An EV charging station showcase.
  • Takeaway materials that contain everything you need to know about electric cars.

Plug’n Drive is a non-profit organization committed to accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in order to maximize their environmental and economic benefits.
