Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

On Thursday, Oct. 24, Bishop’s University will host its first “Running Electric” event in the parking lot of the Sports Complex from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event is open to the public and provides the community with a chance to test drive an electric or hybrid car for 15 minutes.
The running electric events, launched by Équiterre in partnership with Transition énergétique Québec and the Conseil regional de l’environnement de l’Estrie (CREE), is a part of the Quebec government’s goal to have 100,000 electric cars on the road by 2020. The CREE has already carried out three Running electric events in the Estrie region and decided to have Bishop’s University to host the final event for 2019 in the Sherbrooke area.
