Electric vehicle expo in Goshen

GOSHEN, Ind. -- The City of Goshen, the Michiana Area Council of Governments and South Shore Clean Cities will host an Electric Vehicle Expo event on October 1.

This expo will take place in the parking lot of Goshen City Hall, 202 South Fifth Street, on October 1 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Anyone who attends the free expo will get an opportunity to get behind the wheel of the electric vehicles on display and learn about their benefits from attending representatives.

“The expo will highlight the multiple benefits of driving an electric vehicle, introduce members of the community who are already embracing this technology and assist attendees in getting the information they need to make the switch as well,” said Aaron Sawatsky-Kingsley, Director of Goshen’s Department of Environmental Resilience.

Electric vehicles that are scheduled to be on display include the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan LEAF, Tesla Models S, 3 and Y, and more.

The City of Goshen is excited to continue the expansion and adaptation of electric vehicle use in the area.

“Access to charging stations locally has really improved since we last held this event in 2018. The city has installed a free public charging station and two more are coming soon to the Goshen Public Library and the public parking lot near Goshen Brewing Company, thanks to the Volkswagen settlement,” Sawatsky-Kingsley added.

Goshen is currently on task to reduce emissions from light-duty vehicles by twenty-five percent by 2026, according to the city’s Climate Action Plan.
