Electric Vehicle Extravaganza at Earth Day 2017

Yesterday’s Earth Day was an absolute success!  Creatively United for the Planet’s annual United Sustainability Showcase on Earth Day was held at the Royal BC Museum in downtown Victoria Saturday.


Motorize Auto Direct led the Electric Vehicle & Bike Extravaganza outside the museum by displaying many makes of electric cars, electric motorcycles and bikes. Together with Emotive BC, Motorize provided test drives in electric cars.

Motorize had an impressive display of electric vehicles, electric motorcycles and bicycles.  The line of Nissan LEAFs and an Smart EV in front.


The Victoria EV Club was there welcoming the thousands of people into the event with a Tesla Models X and S and answering questions about EVs.

Tesla Tours‘s Model S “Big Red” was onsite. Tesla Tours is a Victoria-based company that gives personally guided solar-powered tours in and around Victoria, BC.
