Production Electric Vehicle Show
August 25, 2015 @ 6:00 pm
Is your next car electric? If so, is it pure-electric, range-extending electric, plug-in hybrid or fuel cell electric? Just about every manufacturer now has an electric car, but not necessarily available on the lot or even in the state. And each manufacturer seems to have taken a different approach to technology, availability and service.
Which is the model for you? Come learn about the options from people who are driving them at MAREA’s Production Electric Vehicle Event at our August 25 monthly meeting. More than a dozen production electric vehicles will be on display.
The vehicle owners will also be available to answer your questions and share their experiences, both positive and negative, about going electric. Did they have to change their lifestyles? Is electric really much less expensive to operate? Have their electric cars been reliable? What about the environmental impact?
This is your opportunity to get the full scoop direct from the experiences of electric owners and users. The Event will start at 6:00 pm, a little earlier than our usual meetings, to give people time to investigate the vehicles outside. At 7:00 pm, we will move indoors for the owners to share their experiences with the overall group. Come with your questions and experience an alternative vehicle show that’s sure to be super-charged!
We hope you can join us on Tuesday, August 25 at TEKPark (9999 Hamilton Boulevard, Breinigsville, PA 18031, between Kutztown and Allentown) for the outdoor car show starting at 6:00 and the indoor owner presentations at 7:00. Meetings are free and open to the public. After the meeting, please plan to stick around and chat with friends old and new. Light snacks will be served. Hope to see you there!
Do you have an electric vehicle you would like to show others? So we can best accommodate you, please email [masked] if you plan to bring your EV.
For questions, contact Vera Cole, [masked].

Free DVD with MAREA membership While supplies last, all new and renewing MAREA members will receive a free copy of “Saving Sunshine, Keeping the Lights on with Batteries and Solar Power,” the 30-minute DVD produced by MAREA this year with funding from the Berks Community Foundation and distributed by Bullfrog Films. It’s terrific film, offering an interesting and easily understood explanation of the electricity grid and distribution generation, especially the role of batteries with solar. MAREA is a 501(c)3 non-profit. Donations and memberships are how we keep the lights on. You can join at the meeting or anytime online. Thanks for your help.
