Emotive is a B.C. wide campaign to raise public awareness about plug-in electric vehicles.
The goal of the campaign is to inform the public about how FUN it is to drive an EV, without promoting one brand over another. It is led by Plug in BC with EV Ambassadors and Community Partners.
Become an EV Ambassador!
If you’re an EV owner, or are passionate about EVs and want to help promote electric cars in BC, we encourage you to sign up to become an EV Ambassador. We’re always welcoming new Ambassadors to volunteer at events or share their EV stories with us through social media. We also offer EV Ambassador training as part of the Community Outreach Event Kit.
Call for Applicants!
The Emotive Community Outreach Incentive Program offers support and funding to communities and local governments in British Columbia to assist with delivering Emotive electric vehicle (EV) outreach. The program is designed to empower individuals, communities, and organizations to deliver Emotive activities and events that raise awareness about plug-in EVs throughout BC.
The incentive program offers the provision of Emotive event materials and/or funding.
Any organization or local government can bring Emotive to their community. Hosting an Emotive EV activity is a fun way to engage communities in raising the awareness and the profile of EVs. A successful Emotive activity could include: an Emotive info booth or table, ride and drive, or an EV 101 presentation. Get creative and let us know how you can promote EVs in your community.
