Wadena Utilities Department Ride and Drive

May 27th 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Burlington Northern Park
100 Aldrich Ave. SW, Wadena, MN

The Wadena Utilities Department will be hosting an electric vehicle (EV) ride and drive on May 27 at Burlington Northern Park in Wadena. During the event, people interested in learning about the benefits and performance of an EV will be able to enjoy a free meal and test drive new models for free from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in a non-sales, no-pressure setting.

Wadena’s ride and drive is designed to provide information and explain why our region is an ideal place to own an EV, as much of our electricity comes from renewable energy sources. That means when people drive EVs, they’re essentially trading gas and diesel for energy coming from dams, wind farms, and solar power. In addition, test driving new EV models will allow people to feel how electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation and stronger acceleration than gas-powered cars, as well as the ability to have all their questions answered by utility staff and energy experts without the pressure of a sales environment.
