CIAS to offer EV test drives from carmakers

The Canadian International AutoShow (CIAS) will be offering attendees the chance to test drive electric vehicles from a wide range of carmakers, according to a news release. The offer aligns well with the event’s theme, The New Movement, and is available for attendees aged 21 and older with a valid driver’s license.

“The automotive world is changing and the Canadian International AutoShow is changing with it,” said AutoShow General Manager Jason Campbell. “You can’t go to any major auto show in the world, be it in Frankfurt or Shanghai or Los Angeles, and not see large numbers of electric vehicles on display. In February, the Canadian International AutoShow will be no different.”

Electric models will be provided by 10 manufacturers, including Nissan, BMW, Fiat-Chrysler, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Volvo, General Motors and Ford. The test drives will be located in the North and South Buildings of the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which is where the actual show will take place.

The show is also home to a range of new models and technologies that are bound to impact the auto industry in some way. “Automakers are embracing all the technological advances available, be they electric, hybrid, hydrogen fuel-cell or autonomous innovations and the 2018 Canadian International AutoShow will reflect this,” said Campbell.

This year’s CIAS will run between Feb. 16 and 25, 2018.
