Electric vehicles (EVs) are cleaner and more affordable than gasoline-powered cars—and they’re fun too! But many Minnesotans wonder how they really work here in the North Star State. Can they handle our extreme winters? Are they a pain to charge? Are there hidden costs to the technology? There’s so much information, where do you even begin?

Join Fresh Energy, Shift2Electric, and American Lung Association for a free educational workshop that’s unaffiliated with any automakers. We’ll have an honest conversation about EV technology, models available, advancements, emissions impacts, the realities of charging, and more. But don’t take it from us! Our panel of EV owners from around the state will tell you what it is really like to own, charge, and drive electric in Minnesota. You will also have an opportunity to get your burning questions answered during a fast-paced Q&A segment.
Thank you to Xcel Energy and Minnesota Power for being promotional partners for this event.
Polly Andersen lives in Wayzata and drives a 2017 Nissan Leaf. “I chose an electric car because I dislike buying gasoline. It is really fun to be self-sufficient – now I smile when I see a gas station because I remember I am free of that time and expense.
Aaron M. Hurd lives in Minnetonka and drives a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid. “I’m an optimizer by nature. I like the idea of minimizing pollution and energy consumption per distance traveled, so a plug-in hybrid made sense.”
Janiece Watts lives in Saint Paul and drives a 2012 Nissan Leaf. “I love the heated steering wheel, the surprising roominess, and cruise control!”
