Here’s how to check out an electric vehicle for free

Recent MTO data indicates that as of December 31, 2021, there are nearly 1,000 registered EVs in Oshawa.

Oshawa Power, in partnership with Durham Region, is hosting the Plug’n Drive Mobile Electric Vehicle Education Trailer (MEET) for a four-week period that started July 21.

This free and tactile informative event combines a question-and-answer session with an electric vehicle (EV) expert and an opportunity to test drive some of the latest EV models.

Information and resources are available to help answer questions for those who may be curious about how to make the transition to an EV, said an Oshawa Power statement.

“We are committed to events and activities supporting residents and consumers with information that drives understanding all aspects of owning and operating electric vehicles. Oshawa Power is grid-ready, now and for the future,” said Ivano Labricciosa, President and CEO of Oshawa Power.

As one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, Oshawa has some of the longest daily commutes in the GTHA. This event will help demonstrate the benefits of EVs, thereby helping to increase EV adoption.

The month-long EV roadshow and discovery centre will take place at Oshawa Power, 100 Simcoe Street South. Bookings are available every Thursday to Sunday, from July 21 to August 14. Register at

“By working with our partners, the City of Oshawa continues to take actions to combat climate change,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter. “Initiatives like this that raise awareness about electric vehicles as an important way to reduce Oshawa’s greenhouse gas emissions are a positive step towards a more sustainable future. I would encourage everyone to learn more,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter

“Electric vehicles are a key climate solution in Durham Region, given that transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Through our partnership with Oshawa Power and Plug’n Drive, we are working to create opportunities for residents to experience driving electric vehicles, and to learn about how they can be part of a win-win solution for the environment and the economy,” added John Henry, Regional Chair and Chief Executive Officer
