The Town of Wells Energy Advisory Committee is proud to announce that it will be holding a free electric car show at the Wells Public Library on Sunday, September 12, from 1-4 PM, rain or shine.
Many Southern Maine car dealers will be providing an EV for public inspection: Rowe Ford a Hyundai Kona, Bill Dodge (Saco) a Nissan Leaf, Bill Dodge (Westbrook) a Kia Niro, Key Ford a Ford Mustang, Ira Jack Saco a Chevy Bolt, and the new ID.4 from Volkswagen. Test drives will be possible with at least one of these dealers.
Local EV owners will also be on hand to show their own vehicles and discuss the pros and cons of going electric. Included in the “pros” will be the extended range of new models, their low maintenance, their remarkable acceleration, and the federal tax credits still available on particular models. Come test-drive a Tesla!!
Efficiency Maine will be present to provide any interested buyer with the details about cash rebates on both new and used EVs, as well as rebates on a whole range of products from heat pumps to washing machines.
Because they run on electricity (approximately 80% from renewable sources in Maine) rather than gasoline, EVs are the cars of the future. They are economical, “green,” and more available now than ever before. “Come and take a look,” says Beth Widmayer, chair of the energy committee, “it may change everything you think about cars.”
