New electric cars tested at Go Green Conference

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some local professionals took the wheel to learn more about green living.

They had the chance to test drive some of the latest electric cars at the annual Go Green Conference on Thursday. The one-day event brings local business owners and government leaders together to learn about eco-friendly products and practices.

Among the electric cars presented at the conference were the Chevy Volt and the Honda Fit EV. Conference organizers say people are often surprised at how the electric cars handle and how similar they are to a regular car, except that they tend to be quieter.

This is the fifth year for the Go Green Conference.
