Taos nonprofit hosts town's first electric vehicle expo

Posted

How far can an electric vehicle go on a single charge? What's the cost? Why do you never have to worry about changing the oil in an electric vehicle?

Find out the answers to these and many other questions about electric vehicles at the first Taos Electric Vehicle Expo Saturday, (Sept. 8) from noon to 6 p.m. at Bataan Hall in the downtown University of New Mexico-Taos campus.

The free event features experts, demonstrations and more, all open to the public. Local EV owners will bring their Teslas, Nissan Leafs, Chevy Bolts, Mitsubishi i-MiEVs and other EVs to the 2018 Taos Electric Vehicle Expo and tell you all about their cars.

The expo is hosted by the nonprofit Renewable Taos, which is working on initiatives to help Taos become completely powered by solar and wind.

"A full transition to renewable energy is essential to sustaining our traditional way of life in Taos County and our surrounding region," says the group's statement of core principles. "Making the transition in concert with others around our planet is urgent and necessary to the health of our people and the land, air, water and life that surround us."

The group was founded in 2012 by John Gusdorf and Bob Bresnahan.
