KAMLOOPS – The B.C. Sustainable Energy Association is offering Kamloops residents the chance to look at the cars of the future at this year’s Hot Nite in the City event.
This weekend, visitors can expect to see three electric vehicles – a Nissan Leaf, a Smart Electric Drive and a Tesla Model S. All three are pure plug-in electric cars and don’t have gas tanks, spark plugs or exhaust pipes. Running and maintenance costs are exceptionally low.
“Tire rotations and wiper blade replacements are really all you need to look after,” says Paul Carter, a Vancouver resident who will display his Model S at the event.
“The only thing to fill up in this car is windshield washer fluid,” he says.
In Consumer Reports car tests, the Tesla Model S is the only car to have received a 99 per cent approval rating.
The B.C. Sustainable Energy Association is a non-profit organization that works with B.C. residents to teach methods for renewable energy.
Hot Nite in the City's electric car show is scheduled to take place at the association’s location near 2 Avenue and Victoria Street on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
