The City of Edina and Midwest EVOLVE will hold an Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive during “Open Streets on 50th” on Sunday, Sept. 23, at Wooddale Park. Test drives will be offered to the public to showcase the performance, availability, and environmental advantages of electric vehicles (EVs).

Visitors to “Open Streets on 50th” are encouraged to walk, bike or scoot to the fourth-annual outdoor event, being held Sept. 23 from 1 to 5 p.m.

While West 50th Street between Wooddale and Chowen avenues will be closed to motor vehicles for the event, electric vehicles will be on display for participants to check out as well as test drive.

Open Streets is about getting outdoors and walking and biking more. But we also want to show visitors an alternative technology that makes the streets friendlier for pedestrians and bikers,” said Sustainability Coordinator Tara Brown, who is working with the Open Streets on 50th planning committee and the American Lung Association in Minnesota to organize the electric vehicle Ride and Drive event that will take place on West 50th Street at Wooddale Avenue.

Knowledgeable staff and electric vehicle owners will be on hand to answer questions while visitors check out the electric vehicles. Additional vehicles will be in the Wooddale Park parking lot for those interested in taking one for a test drive.
