We know that you could find your next kitchen or bathroom at Ikea.  But … your next car?

Ten electric vehicle models will be on display at Ikea Canberra on Sunday 9 May - Mothers’ Day.  You could find your next car there, in the carpark, between 2pm and 4pm.

You will be able to chat to EV owners, collect information about EVs, and take passenger rides in cars such as the Tesla Model 3, Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Ioniq, Nissan Leaf, MG ZS EV and BMW i3.

This EV Experience Day is presented by the ACT Branch of the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA ACT) as part of its "Cut Emissions, Go Electric" program. 

AEVA ACT actively supports the ACT Government target of Net Zero Emissions by 2045.  It sees electrification of transport as a part of that pathway, now that the ACT has achieved 100% renewable electricity.

AEVA believes that the best way to find out about the benefits of an EV is to own one.  The second best way is to talk to an owner.

The "Cut Emissions, Go Electric" program is supported by the ACT Government under its Community Zero Emissions grant scheme.  Further public events in this program will be held throughout 2021.
