Event Description


In celebration of Drive Electric Earth Day, the Bar Harbor Task Force on the Climate Emergency welcomes you to attend our second annual free Electric Vehicle Showcase in Bar Harbor, Maine.

We have invited many local owners to put their cars on display allowing you to get real ownership, reliability, range, charging and technical questions answered by the people who own and drive them. We expect some to offer short road-trips around town so you can experience the thrill of riding in an EV. 

 We have invited local electric car and bike dealers to help you learn about new EV offerings, costs, incentives, rebates and how to purchase.  Come and learn about a new zero emission vehicle rental service in town allowing you to explore the area in the very near future.

Now is a great time to consider the switch to a zero emissions vehicle. We know EVs are an important part of minimizing green house gas emissions and resolving the global climate emergency. We hope to see you there!
