The Electric Vehicle Council of Ottawa (EVCO) EV Expo 2008
(held Saturday, May 31 2008 at the Canadian Museum of Science
Despite heavy rains in the morning while we were setting up, we
were pleased to participate in the annual show put on by EVCO. We
brought the Green14 (1973 Porsche 914 converted to electric
drive), the 1975 Auranthetic electric motorcycle, some Soneil
battery chargers, PakTrakrs, Water Savers and of course, copies of
The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy.
We snapped a few pictures and some of them are shown below.
There was a great array of
electric vehicles and other related displays, including an
electric pickup truck, several electric cars, an electric
motorcycle, electric bicycles, electric tractors, a diesel
motorcycle, human powered vehicles, and more.
