Want to test drive an electric vehicle? HRM offering free test drive events over the next couple of months

HRM release:

The Halifax Regional Municipality has partnered with Next Ride and the Clean Foundation to offer a number of free electric vehicle (EV) test drive events to residents across the municipality, including in rural, urban and suburban areas. These events will take place from June to August. 

During each test drive event, residents can expect a free test drive in an electric vehicle, information on electric vehicles, electric vehicle rebates, and the Municipal Electric Vehicle Strategy. 

Many of the events will take place next to the locations of the municipality’s EV chargers – a project currently underway to install public EV chargers across the region. Both the EV test drive events and EV charger installation are in support of the Municipal Electric Vehicle Strategy and efforts to support the decarbonization of transportation.   

Visit halifax.ca/EV for the event schedule. Registration for each event will open approximately two weeks before the event date. Residents are encouraged to register online to guarantee your test drive. Limited walk-in spots may be available.
