"Working with Next Ride to provide residents a chance to try EV’s while we make the transition to meet Nova Scotia's emissions targets was a great experience. Their communication and expertise made it easy to provide a successful event to the Town of Wolfville."

Luke Moffatt

Programmer, Community Recreation, Town of Wolfville

"My wife and I attended a Next Ride event and test drove our first electric car. After that positive experience, I ordered a Chevrolet Bolt. Next Ride provided several other education opportunities to me as I made the switch to electric and provided good advice each time. This car has changed my life."

Alan Collins

Next Ride event attendee

"The students were engaged the whole time. We almost ran out of time because the kids had so many great questions. I would highly recommend this presentation to students as a fun way to do some history yet think ahead to the future through electric cars."

Lynn Little

Teacher, West Kings District High School
