Vehicles available for test drive were BMW i3, Chevrolet Bolt, Ford Fusion Energi, Mitsubishi i-MIEV, Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV, and Tesla Model X.
Those in attendance included Plug’n Drive representatives, OEM representatives, Ministers, MPPs, and members of the public. Who had an opportunity to ask any questions about the vehicles, as well as take them out for a spin around the block.
A selection of companies that sell charging solutions were also on hand.
