EV Fest 2012 - More Than 40 Exhibitors - Over Double Than at Previous Events


Toronto, ON, September 08, 2012 -- Canada’s largest and most influential EV Show, EV Fest 2012 is the primary and vital connection between hobbyists, intenders, buyers, and various manufacturers across Canada.

“EV Fest 2012 is our largest show ever. Consumers are gradually becoming more knowledgeable and receptive. Electric vehicles and hybrids are growing by leaps and bounds in their acceptance,” says EV Fest founder and show executive producer, Robert Weekley.

“Gas prices have been extremely high all summer. The first weekend after Labour Day is the ideal time to show off new cars. It’s a chance for the dedicated do-it-yourselfers to show off what they’ve been up to this past year. And the OEMs are embracing fully electric vehicles and hybrids. Gas Cars of today, will be Electric tomorrow. They want to get in front of their customers too,” he noted.

Citing the two new Dual Head Schneider-Electric charging stations capable of servicing four Electric Vehicles at one time, Weekley is confident the location is a natural fit for EV Fest 2012.

“This many charging stations tells’ me our goals are aligned. There are many new directions in the EV marketplace. Consumer acceptance of these technologies is at an all-time high. And the OEMs have taken a step in the right direction. Of the 40+ Exhibitors, we’ve got 15 personal vehicles, 14 private businesses, 1 Large OEM, and 3 OEM’s, 4 Corporate Businesses and Non-Profits are on-board. We also have had New Sponsors coming on board this year. We’ll also see a wide range of EV bikes, Trikes and conversions exhibiting.”

New this year is a separate category, Electric Garden Tractors. “New supporters are coming on board all the time. Toyota Canada, Toronto Hydro, Unicell, Schneider Electric, and Dean Meyers GM are among those who recognize the value of educating and guiding consumers in the alternatives available to them.”

“We’re expecting at least 4 times last year's 250 visitors. Advance Tickets are available now. There’s more trust in the marketplace. Most companies are aggressively pursing some form of hybrid technology. We're now seeing new companies with brand new, from the ground up EV’s, such as the TESLA Model S Sedan, or the Unicell Purolator QuickSider Delivery Vehicle. They’re in the position to be embraced by new consumer receptivity and are entering the marketplace at a great time,” opines Weekley.

EV Fest 2012 runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM September 9th at the Evergreen Brick Works, 550 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M4W 3X8.
