Join us to drive the change!

MN Electric Vehicle Owners (MNEVO) provides a forum for Minnesota plug-in vehicle (BEV and PHEV) owners to connect, share their experiences and learn more about EV related topics. We meet every second month in various locations. Our membership and meetings are free and open to anyone who owns or is interested in shifting to drive electric. MN EV Owners is a chapter of the National Electric Vehicle Association



MNEVOwners provides a forum to meet with EV owners, share your experiences, ask questions and just enjoy connecting with others. People shift to driving electric for many reasons, and it is good to learn from different viewpoints. Meetings are also a great place to see new vehicle makes and models.



New technologies, new vehicles and new ways to power your drive. There are so many new things constantly happening in this industry and many of them affect the ways we choose, charge and use our vehicles. We will have presentations and new discussion topics at each meeting.



As EV owners, we can make a difference by simply sharing our experiences with the general public and key stake-holders. Please see the calendar below for upcoming events and sign up for the ones that fit your schedule. You don't have to be an expert on all things EV, just share why and how you drive electric.

In November we will finally talk about electric boats. I’m sure many of you have seen videos of Candela’s record breaking c8 boat which is just a beautiful machine, but you don’t necessarily need to pay several hundred thousand to be able to enjoy electric boating. At this meeting, we will hear how three of our members have approached this with different motors, batteries and even solar panels. Come and hear about their experiences. Our meeting is hosted by Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association in Rockford, MN, and we will also hear what kind of programs they have put together to support transportation electrification.

We had another fun Fair to talk with people about EVs. We had Ford F-150 Lightning, Tesla Model Y and Polestar 2 on display with electric garage and a DCFC station. Our members talked with people about our experiences and answer their questions about EVs and charging.
