With interest in electric vehicles growing because of increased fuel costs, PGE is inviting its residential customers to test-drive some of the newest models. EV chargers also will be on display.
"With staggering prices at the pump, there's no better time to consider an electric car. And why not? Today's EVs offer great range, virtually zero emissions, come in a wide range of prices and are easy to charge. That's why we're excited to sponsor the Electric Car Guest Drive and EV Charger Exhibit," PGE announced.
The free test-drives will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at the PCC Sylvania campus, 12000 S.W. 49th Ave. in Portland.
EVs available for driving include: Chevy Bolt; Ford Mustang Mach E; Hyundai Ioniq 5; Nissan Leaf; Polestar 2; Rivian R1T; VW ID-4; and Tesla Model 3, S, X and Y.
A mobile EVSE exhibit trailer will showcase multiple residential EV charging stations for hands-on viewing. Each unit has informational posters and tablets with in-depth reviews and specifications. Representatives will be available to discuss methods of charging EVs at home, work and in public.
Reservations are required and can be made on PGE's website here.
