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.

On Monday, June 5th from 6-8PM, we will combine a fun social EV gathering with an exceptional learning opportunity. We will get together on the top level of the University of St Thomas Anderson Parking Facility for social time. From there, Professor Mahmoud Kabalan will lead us in small groups for tours at the UST Center for Microgrid Research facility and lab that is housed in an adjacent building.

University of St Thomas Center for Microgrid Research runs a real-world industry-grade microgrid and research lab on the UST campus in St Paul, Minnesota. The microgrid can operate in: (1) grid-connected mode, (2) island-mode and (3) seamlessly transition from grid-connected to island modes and vice versa. For more information and technical details:

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.
