With Earth Day just around the corner, it’s an electric week at Auto123 as we turn the lights towards noteworthy developments in the EV segment.

Montreal, QC – Starting at 1 p.m. today, the seventh edition of the Montreal Electric Vehicle Show (MEVS) will be officially underway. The show will welcome visitors between 1 p.m. today (Friday) and 5 p.m. Sunday.

This is the largest event of its kind open to the public in North America, which is a reflection of the importance of the Quebec market in particular, and the interest of Canadian buyers more generally, when it comes to electric vehicles.

We should plug-in hybrids, since that type of model will also be on show this weekend at the Big O.

Organizers are expecting a healthy turnout at this year’s weekend, not only because of the growing interest in electric models in the province, but also because in Quebec, the subsidy granted for the purchase of a model will be reduced as of January1, 2025. Certainly, some buyers ready to take the plunge will want to do so before the end of the year. The show provides a fantastic opportunity to see a whole bunch of the newest EVs in one place – and try them out.

Pointed out Luc Saumure, SVEM’s co-promoter and marketing vice-president, “It’s important that people understand that the subsidy is only granted once the car has been delivered. With the delays we’re experiencing, it’s now or never.”

In all, visitors will have access to over 60 vehicles across 23 brands. Some 80 vehicles will be available for test drives. We’re talking record numbers in both cases.

Visitors will also be able to attend various conferences over the course of the weekend, in addition to meeting a number of speakers and exhibitors.
