Plug’n Drive is a non-profit organization committed to accelerating the adoption of electric cars to maximize their environmental and economic benefits. To help drivers make the switch, we are focused on three key programs: 1. Education 2. Home Charging Infrastructure and 3. Public Charging Infrastructure. .
Although initially focused on Ontario, we believe that electrification of transportation can bring wide-ranging benefits to all Canadians. We strive to be the "go to" source of information and resources that will help achieve this.
We Take Awareness on the Road
Sponsored by TD Bank and their Friends of The Environment Program, the “EV Roadshow” has taken Plug’n Drive across Ontario on a campaign to increase public awareness about electric cars and their.environmental and economic benefits.
In 2012, we reached more than 10,000 people at more than 70 events across Ontario - answering questions, engaging drivers and providing test drives. Some of the highlights include our "EV Day" at Yonge-Dundas Square on August x in Toronto and being a lead collaborator for the eco-drive showcase at the Canadian International Auto Show.
