Westport Electric Vehicle Rally

The Westport Electric Car Club (WECC) will hold its second annual Electric Car Rally on May 4. The 40-mile event, which begins and ends at the Westport Saugatuck Metro-North station depot, is open to the public. Entrants must be plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles.
Registration will occur in front of the Steam Coffee Bar on the New Haven bound side, next to the 4 electric vehicle charging stations. There will be a mid-rally stopping point at the Wilton Go Green Festival and a free public event at the finish in Westport. Rally registration begins at 9am and the rally will start at 10am. The public event will begin at 1pm when the cars are expected to finish. The public will have an opportunity to speak with electric vehicle owners, learn about electric vehicle technology and visit sponsor tents.
Club President Leo Cirino says, “Electric cars are gaining traction in the marketplace as drivers learn that they are good cars, fun to drive and practical… We welcome the public to come and learn about electric vehicles, the efforts of the club, see the exhibits and enjoy a fun, family-friendly event.”
