Drive Green Ottawa is a celebration of Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEVs). This week-long event ran from September 26th – October 1st 2021, and demystified ZEVs through a series of events and activities that highlighted electric options, opportunities, how to purchase, incentives, charging options and more.
