TD Bank Group Sponsors World's First Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre
TORONTO, May 17, 2017 /3BL Media/ - The world’s first Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre (EVDC) opened in Toronto today. With support from TD Bank Group, Plug’n Drive built an experiential learning facility dedicated to electric vehicle education and awareness. The centre supports the Ontario government’s Climate Change Action Plan, which has the goal of increasing EV sales by 5% of all new vehicles sold by 2020.
The goal of the EVDC is to educate consumers about the environmental and economic benefits of electric transportation, while helping to drive EV sales and the corresponding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions. The centre is a sales-free environment, showcasing the latest EV models and charging stations from leading manufacturers, and provides visitors with the knowledge they need to consider an EV for their next vehicle purchase.
