Green Cars on Show at Quebec Auto Event

Green Cars on Show at Quebec Auto Event

For the first time at the Quebec Auto Show, thanks to the support of the natural resource minister, CAA-Quebec, will offer the possibility to try an electric or rechargeable hybrid vehicle.

It will be possible to take the wheel of the most recent “green” car models and even some cars which haven’t yet been commercialized like the Ford Fusion Energi and the Smart fortwo electric drive.

The Quebec Auto Show began on Tuesday morning with the mayor, Regis Labeaume and the natural resource minister, Martine Ouellet in attendance.

In order to encourage this initiative by CAA-Quebec, the car dealers’ corporation from the Quebec region, organizer of the Show, as well as the financial participation of the natural resource minister are contributing.

The new government wants to make electric transportation an important section of its new energy policy. It could be a project that can stimulate the economy and improve the environment as well as the quality of life.

To try the cars, you need to access the Éco-Zone in the right wing of the main building.

Specialized personnel will accompany participants in their road-trial, once their subscription is done and their driver’s license validated.
