What is the Oregon electric vehicle association?

The Oregon Electric Vehicle Association (OEVA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit all volunteer group of EV Enthusiasts, EV Evangelists, and EV Owners of all makes and models, and an independent chapter of the national Electric Vehicle Association. Intrigued by the EV revolution and want to find out more about us? Check out our Membership page.

See what we're planning on our Events page. We help organize and staff the Electric Vehicle Showcase (Part of Electric Avenue) at the Oregon International Auto Show each winter, and we host a Drive Electric Earth Month (DEEM) event in the spring and National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) event in the fall. At these events you can talk with experienced EV owners who can answer your questions from their personal experience. At DEEM and NDEW we all have our personal EVs present. Some of us have basic, economy EVs. Many of us have technically advanced vehicles, computers on wheels,  and we can invite you inside and take the time to show you how this new technology has made driving safer, more reliable, and less stressful. It's like how the smartphone changed cellphones, but for cars. We also have meetings every month where we talk about EVs, learn about EVs, and generally have a pleasant time.

We are all about sharing our EV knowledge from our own experience. Check out the Stories pages, where our members tell their stories of living with an EV instead of a gas car.

You will be amazed at the number of fully electric vehicles available. Extensive information about them is compiled on the Cars page. 

Have questions about EVs? See our Ask page where you can submit questions for our EV experts to answer, and eventually browse a collection of the best questions and answers.

The About page has information about the 2024 OEVA Board and members doing Special Projects for the association.

Want to find out about upcoming OEVA events and activities? Join the OEVA announcements email group at this link: Keep informed - Receive Announcements.

Consider joining our EVTalk Discussion Group. It's a great way to connect with knowledgeable EV owners, participate in interesting EV related discussions, get local service recommendations, and buy or sell EVs, parts, or accessories.
