Branchez-Vous Events

Testing a vehicle before acquisition is an important step. There are several ways access a test drivre if your dealer is not able to provide one. Free events like Branchez-Vous are great opportunities to try and compare plug-in models offered in Quebec.

To participate in a Branchez-Vous 2019 event, you will need to book your time slot by registering in advance. Registration forms will be published soon on the Running Electric campaign website.

New 2018 format!

The Branchez-Vous formula not only allows you to try more models, but also, at your reserved time-slot.

Choice of test drive circuits
A selection of different circuits composed of 4 vehicles will be offered at every event. Plan for two hours per circuit.

Two days per event
In every host city, two test drive days will be organized: Friday (afternoon and evening) and Saturday.

Upon reservation
People who wish to participate will reserve their spot in advance by selecting the date, time and 4-model circuit they wish.

Branchez-Vous circuits will lead you to meet with participating car dealerships for a brief courtesy stop before moving on to a next vehicle. The estimated duration of a four vehicle circuit is approximately two hours. Experienced volunteer EV drivers will accompany you during your test drives; answering your questions and helping you evaluate your needs in order to identify which vehicle is best for you.
