As part of our “Green Steps” themed Sustainable Ballard Festival (Sept 24, 11am-3pm) this year we will have the opportunity to view some awesome electric vehicles from the members of Seattle Electric Vehicle Association (“SEVA”). SEVA was founded over 30 years ago mostly as a car-conversion hobbyists’ club. They still have members that convert conventional vehicles to electric.
Many of you are probably aware that last month, California regulators passed rules banning the sale of new gas-powered cars by 2035, a move hailed as a significant victory in the fight against climate change. We’re certain that this will influence other states to move forward with more earth friendly commuting regulations/options.
There will be a 2017 Chevrolet Volt (this model, a plug-in hybrid, is now out of production) on display. Also, the converted Honda nicknamed O’ Sparky; and a Toyota RAV-4. Come check out these models and ask questions of the SEVA members on hand. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about electric vehicles.
