Avondale, APS team on electric vehicle education showcase

Posted

Arizona Public Service Co. and the city of Avondale are giving local drivers the chance to test drive the latest and most popular electric car models in one place.

The free and family-friendly Electric Guest Car Drive Event will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 13- 14 at the Avondale Park-and-Ride near Avondale Boulevard and West Roosevelt Street.

Drivers looking to make the switch to electric vehicles can ask EV owners questions about car technology and affordability and learn from vehicle experts.

“When I was getting ready to switch to an electric vehicle, I had all kinds of questions,” said Danae Presler, city of Avondale Sustainability Officer. “This event offers a no-pressure way to learn more about EVs from people that own and drive them, and to test out different makes and models, all in one convenient location.”

Educational representatives will be available to discuss charging equipment and how to conveniently power electric cars at home, at work and in public.

“There are many advantages to driving an electric car that can benefit your wallet, lifestyle and the environment – from reduced maintenance costs, to no oil changes to the big impact these vehicles can have in reducing carbon emissions,” said Judson Tillinghast, APS Leader of Customer Technology. “More electric cars are expected to be on Arizona’s roads over the next 10 years and APS has a goal of supporting the adoption of 450,000 EVs in our service territory by 2030. We want to connect drivers with the resources and information they need to make the transition to electric vehicles.”
