Summit Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive

It’s time to go electric! The variety of electric vehicles (EV) on the market is increasing, the network of charging stations is growing, and the tax benefits are still great…especially in Colorado.

But what’s it like to drive an EV in the mountains and during the winter? How do you charge at home or on the road? Join us at this free event to ask your EV-driving neighbors all your burning questions and test drive a few electric cars!

Event Details:
Wednesday, September 22 from 4 – 7 PM
Frisco Adventure Park (parking lots across from the Day Lodge)
Music + snacks

Models available for test drives:
Volkswagen ID.4, Nissan Leaf, & Tesla
Thank you the following dealers: Boulder Nissan, Emich VW, and Green Eyed Motors


*If you are a Summit County EV driver, share your driver experience with the community!
Register here to bring your car to the event.
