Celebrate Earth Day by taking an electric vehicle or two out for a free spin and learn about the many benefits of gas-free transportation at the Green Living Festival in Novato. Presented by Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association (GGEVA) and sponsored by MCE Clean Energy and the City of Novato, the event offers free test drives and busts myths about electric vehicles (EVs). Drivers can experience firsthand how these beautiful cars quickly accelerate and respond. EVs are budget-friendly, practically maintenance-free, eliminate expensive trips to the gas station, are quiet and non-polluting, with an abundance of financial incentives. An electric vehicle information booth provides details about replacing gas vehicles with zippy electric transportation and opportunities to talk with current electric vehicle drivers.

“If you are thinking about replacing an existing car, are curious about what driving an EV is like, want to see the latest and greatest technology or want to learn from the experiences of longtime EV owners, this event provides that opportunity in a zero-pressure environment,” says Dale W. Miller, GGEVA president. “This is an opportunity to experience just how easy EVs are to use and how much fun they are to ride or drive. You can test drive a variety of EVs, talk with representatives of organizations about EV charging and learn the most up-to-date information on available discounts and rebates.

There are a variety of EV models from two passenger cars to seven passenger SUVs, all with the highest safety ratings. EVs can travel up to 335 miles on a single charge; the cost of charging is three cents per mile and thousands of charging locations make road trips easy. EVs start at $23,900 and never need increasingly expensive gas station fill-ups, oil change, smog check, spark plugs, fuel pumps or starters.

About the Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association: Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association is an all-volunteer, educational, support, and advocacy organization that promotes electric vehicles. GGEVA is a chapter of the Electric Auto Association, a non-profit 501(c)3 educational organization.
