Like many organizations across the country, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has had to adapt to this year’s unusual circumstances, particularly in regards to their annual EcoRun. Typically, during the EcoRun, a group of 20-30 automotive journalists, over a few days, drive across part of Canada, test-driving eco-friendly vehicles and collecting real-world fuel economy stats to share. Check out our post about last year’s EcoRun.
This year, AJAC has designated September as EcoMonth and plans to devote the entire month to educating consumers on the merits of electrified and fuel-efficient driving, all while maintaining a physical distance. AJAC journalists across the country are test-driving vehicles locally and connecting, virtually, with automaker/sponsor partners. You can check out their ongoing reporting by following the hashtag #AJACEcoMonth
