VOLVO XC60

The new XC60 lets you recharge while driving. Comfort is excellent, driving effortless and the upgraded Clean Zone keeps your interior air quality on top. The extended electric range means that most of your everyday driving can be fully electric and emission-free. Thanks to Lovering Volvo!

Special thanks to Peters Nissan in Nashua for the Nissan LEAF Plus!

Bolt EV is the first affordable all-electric car to offer an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a single charge. It has a long list of impressive characteristics, including some of the most technologically advanced features, stand-out looks and plenty of space. Because life never stops, here’s an electric vehicle that can keep up. Special thanks to Banks Chevorlet.

TOYOTA

With dramatic styling and and a futuristic interior, Prius Prime is Toyota's most advanced hybrid yet. Special thanks to Toyota of Portsmouth!

BMW I3

With higher capacity batteries fully chargeable in under 6 hours – and a range increase of over 30% – the BMW i3 and i3s are perfect companions for daily commutes and road trips. In the BMW i3 family, everything is intentional from the wheels on up. These compact electric vehicles are built to deliver new dimensions of performance, reliability, and fun. We thank our private owner for the ability to showcase the i3.

It's a crossover with 4X4 off-road ability that uses both electric and gas power. Plug it in and use regenerative power to charge the battery, and fill it up (once in a while) at any gas station. Thanks to Lovering Mitsubishi for the ability to showcase the Outlander!

TELSA MODEL X

The Tesla Model X is hailed as one of the most technologically advanced electric vehicles, with space for seven and a range of 325 miles. Tesla is not affiliated with the Charge Forward EV Relay and we thank our private owner for the ability to showcase the Model X.
