Electric vehicles (EV) are a growing market with every major auto manufacturer in the world making significant investments. Many manufacturers are currently offering models that plug in and there are more models expected to be available to consumers over the next few years.

Experience An EV Drive

EV awareness and interest is growing but many consumers have had limited experience with electric vehicles. Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive an electric vehicle? Member-owners no longer have to wait to drive an EV. 

Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative offers our members the opportunity to borrow and test drive the Cooperative's all electric Chevy Bolt. 

ILEC's EV loaner program provides our members the chance to see how an EV works in order to provide first hand education and awareness about the quickly growing EV industry.
