What we're about

Do you care about clean air? Are you interested in saving $1000/year on gas? How about saving $3000 on gas and plugging in at home? Or, better yet, what about saving $10,000 or more on a Prius Hybrid or an All-Electric Nissan LEAF or even a Tesla "S"? Or, saving $5,000 (as a Canadian Federal rebate) by buying one of the 15 all Electric Cars or $2500 on one of the 22 available Plug-in Hybrid Electric Cars. We can even arrange a $1000 rebate on a used EV (through Plug n'Drive's EVDC).

Would you like to learn more about Hybrid and Electric Cars? Would you like to share your enthusiasm for clean, quiet, efficient transportation with others? Then you need to join our group and come out to our meetings and join in the "fun" -- because fun is a renewable resource. Objectives include educating the public and members on the benefits of Hybrid & Electric Technology. And organizing an Efficiency Rally, where the winner is who uses the least energy.

Most important, is to always "Think Outside the Pump!" and drive better Electrically.

Canada Talks Electric Cars Webinar - "The Politics of Electrification in Canada"

The Electric Vehicle Society has announced Episode #15 of the “Canada Talks Electric Cars” webinar monthly series. This episode is entitled "The Politics of Electrification in Canada" and will feature a special guest speaker, Dr. Nathan Lemphers. Nathan will be presenting on the politics of electrification in Canada and will focus on talking about the regional politics of EVs - why there are not the same opportunities for and challenges to EV adoption in different parts of Canada. He will address ways to politically overcome some potential barriers to adoption. Nathan will also bring in some interesting insights from California and Norway as well.
Nathan is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Smart Prosperity Institute. His post-doctoral research examines the politics and policy of electric vehicles and the impact that this new technology will have on regional economies.
In 2019, Nathan was awarded his Doctorate from the University of Toronto ’s Department of Political Science. His doctoral research examined the climate politics of three major fossil fuel-exporting countries, Australia, Canada, and Norway. Nathan has been a senior campaigner at Oil Change International, where he advocated for scenario reform at the International Energy Agency, and a senior policy analyst at the Pembina Institute, where he worked on oil sands and pipeline policy issues. He has co-chaired the University of Toronto ’s Responsible Investment Committee and sat on the Community of Interest Panel of the Mining Association of Canada ’s Towards Sustainable Mining program.
Nathan also holds a Masters of City Planning from MIT and a B.Sc. from the University of Alberta.

Monthly Meeting

Online event

This meeting, unfortunately, will be held again online with our EV Society subscription to Zoom and these meetings will be chaired by Ron Groves.

Ron would like to ask everyone to bring a short story about an adventure they have had either with or about their EV ownership experience. This could be a journey they took, a problem they have for the group to comment on, a charging experience, a warranty item question, an encounter they had with an ICE driver that went well, or not! etc.

Special non- EV'er Meeting: EV-101

Online event

If I've learned anything while driving my clean, silent Electric Car, it's that education is the main stumbling block of EVs becoming main stream today. Not range, not charging infrastructure, not even purchase price ... just insufficient availability to up to date information on the financial and personal and environmental advantages of driving a superior vehicle.

So, I'm planning a special non- EVers gathering, virtually, of course, via Zoom, this Tuesday evening (MAR. 23) at 7 PM at ... Www.Zoom.us/j/[masked] , directed particularly towards non- EVers.

This is a special gathering for the edification of non- EVers. I would like to have a few EVers on the call who have experienced first hand the pleasures of driving EVs and can collectively answer all of our non - EVer's questions.

Please invite your non- EV drivers to this special meeting for them.

"See" you this evening ... Stay healthy ... drive clean ...
