Have you experienced driving an electric vehicle (EV)? You can in a no sales pressure environment at the Whole Earth & Watershed Festival courtesy of the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project.
Try out an all-electric LEAF from Crown Nissan, an all-electric Bolt from Lithia Chevy and a plug-in hybrid Prius Prime from Lithia Toyota. The EV test drives will be from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the west side of the festival near the Redding Police Department.
Zero-emission vehicles are not only better for the environment, they promote better health through cleaner air, while providing significant savings on fuel costs. And with the available financial incentives – a California state rebate and eligibility for a sizeable federal income tax credit – EVs can cost less than you might think.
While at the Festival, visit the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project Booth #111 (on the west side of the main City Hall building) for information about the state rebate program, different types of eligible electric vehicles on the market and various ways to charge at home and on the go.
Any licensed driver can take a test drive, however, Festival attendees with beer garden wristbands/hand stamps will not be allowed to participate so plan your day accordingly!
