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 Auto 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.
Our Next Meeting on Wednesday 4/28 6:30-8:30PM:
There was only one auto dealer principal who openly supported Clean Cars MN rulemaking. This was Paul Blomquist, owner of C & M Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram of Hallock and Roseau County Ford. He posted a very well-articulated written comment during the process https://speakup-us-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/attachment/file/604c1afe24439878900266d3/Clean_Cars_letter_of_support_from_Paul_Blomquist.pdf
I have the great pleasure to announce that he will join our next meeting from his Ford dealership in Roseau to share his perspectives, give us a virtual tour of a Mustang Mach-E and also bring us the latest news from the National Ford Dealer Council meeting, which he attends just before our meeting. Join us to hear what one of Minnesota’s most rural auto dealers has to say about EVs.
