Electric cars to be showcased at Victoria arena

Check out alternative fuel vehicles before Victoria Royals game

About 20 electric cars will be on display prior to the Victoria Royals game at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre tomorrow afternoon (Jan. 31).

Organized by the Victoria Leaf Club, the “return of the electric car” event will feature commuter vehicles like the Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi i-MiEV, SmartCar, Tesla and other electric municipal vehicles, said Fred Wissemann, president of Victoria Leaf Club.

“Colwood is bringing one of its Might-E Trucks,” he said. “That’s what our club is all about, we’re trying to promote green cars and show they really are returning.”

Cars will be on display from 3:30 p.m. until Friday’s 7:05 p.m. game time against the Vancouver Giants.

Various EV dealerships will also showcase their vehicles in the arena’s concourse.
