Last week the City of Golden Valley hosted an Electric Vehicle (EV) Showcase that gathered over 110 attendees at City Hall. Twelve Golden Valley households brought an EV to display and engaged in conversations with visitors. Xcel Energy, Drive Electric Minnesota, Minnesota GreenCorps, and Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission also had representatives on hand to answer questions and share information.
Showcased EV models included a Polestar 2, Volkswagen ID.4, BMW i3, Tesla Models X, Y, and S, Mustang Mach-E, Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), Lincoln Corsair PHEV, Toyota RAV4 PHEV, and even a Zero DSR electric motorcycle.
Golden Valley continues to be at the forefront of EV adoption in Minnesota. Among the 30 most populous cities in Hennepin County, Golden Valley ranks 2nd in EV ownership per capita. Golden Valley is pleased to share the benefits of EVs with the community and continue making progress on its Energy Action Plan.
