Free EV Webinars provide real-life insight.

You might have questions about EVs, so join a webinar to get insight into these questions and more:

  • Are EVs difficult to charge? Are there SUVs and all-wheel drive models available? What about for driving in snow, heat, or the mountains?
  • What rebates or tax incentives can save me money by driving an EV? Are there hidden costs?

The webinars will be geared toward Minnesota and Colorado drivers, but most of the information will be relevant to all drivers.
