Some of the electric vehicles on display at the EV Link Up 2023..

EV owners, dealers, and enthusiasts gathered at an EV link-up for World EV Day on Saturday, hosted by Evergo at Hope Gardens in St Andrew. Battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) users had their fill, touring the display of several new EVs to be rolled out and some already available on the market. "When we launched Evergo 2019, we didn't have any full electric vehicles; if you count today, there are over 20 vehicles here, just here. What we've realised is that between 2019 when the country had about 25 full EVs and now, we have 250 EVs," said Wayne McKenzie, president and CEO of Evergo. While guests checked out the cars on display from ATL, Stewart's, Jetcon, and more, the ambience was covered with music by
