Test drive an EV during Glenwood Earth Day event

Drivers have a chance to get behind the wheel of a plug-in electric vehicle during the Earth Day Celebration this Saturday in Glenwood Springs.

The Electric Vehicle Sales Event is hosting a free ride and drive featuring three plug-in vehicle models: the Audi A3 e-tron, the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf.

The free electric vehicle ride and drive will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at the north end of the Sunlight Ski & Bike Shop parking lot in the 800 block of Cooper Avenue.

Drivers can register on site for a 15-minute test drive slot. Registration starts at 12:30 p.m.

All three models are available at participating dealers at a discounted price through June 30. The dealers are Audi Glenwood Springs, Mountain Chevrolet and Boulder Nissan.

The discounts can be combined with the state of Colorado’s $5,000 tax credit and a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 to significantly drive down the cost of a lease or purchase.

The Electric Vehicle Sales Event is led by Refuel Colorado, Garfield Clean Energy and CLEER, and sponsored by CORE, city of Glenwood Springs, city of Aspen, town of Snowmass Village, Eagle County, town of Vail, town of Avon, Holy Cross Energy, Garfield County Environmental Health and Walking Mountains Science Center.

More information about the vehicles and dealerships is available on the Garfield Clean Energy website, GarfieldCleanEnergy.org.
