LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — NV Energy is giving drivers in the Las Vegas valley the chance to test-drive an electric vehicle on Saturday.

A variety of different models will be available at Lorenzi Park for drivers who are curious or might have considered switching to an electric vehicle. Those include:

  • Audi E-Tron
  • Mercedes Benz EQS
  • Subaru Solterra EV
  • Volkswagen ID.4
  • Tesla Model X

The goal of the event is to introduce people to the variety and accessibility of electric vehicle technology, NV Energy says.

"This includes old phones, laptops, tablets, electric toothbrushes, power tool batteries, Bluetooth speakers, wireless headphones, and more," organizers said.
