Antique Electric Conversion

Did you know that the very first electric car was built in 1835? This 1918 Chevrolet classic was converted into an electric vehicle and generously loaned to the Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre to help showcase the EVolution of the automobile. It is on display next to our Electrifying History Wall that recounts the entire history of electric vehicles going back 150+ years. The owner of this pristine antiquity has decided to sell with an asking price of $39,000 CDN. To learn more, contact Plug’n Drive at or 647-717-6941 and we will put you in touch with the owner.
