Talk with EV owners and manufacturers about costs, mileage range, rebates and incentives like the 20% discount in UMass parking fees and UMass EV charging stations. Test drive or ride EVs and plug-in hybrids from BMW, Chevy, Hyundai, Nissan, VW and Tesla. UMass employees should register for a special EV workshop at 11am to get 2-hour release time. Free EV T-shirts for participants.  Registration is on the UMass Partnership for Worker Education "classes" website here.  Navigate to bottom of page to "Working Better Together Classes" and select the EV event.
