Unfamiliarity with EVs are a considerable barrier for most people to consider them.


Used Electric Vehicles Ride-and-Drive

  • Tuesday, July 23, 2019, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Not since their decline in popularity in the 1920s have electric vehicles (EVs) seen a resurgence of interest among governments, consumers, automaker, and material scientists. 

As with many clean technologies, EVs have been embraced by early adopters who were more willing to stomach the relatively high cost and deal with unfamiliar technology. 

However, as more and more EVs come off leases, used EVs are becoming a reasonably priced option for the everyday driver looking for a good value.

At this educational event, the public is invited to test drive used EVs at Ridge Road Imports, a partner of EV Tompkins. Knowledgeable car experts and educator are available to answer questions. Light refreshments will be provided.
