Electric vehicle enthusiasts and those with an interest in making the switch converged on the Tramsheds on Saturday afternoon.
The Good Car Company's "EV Show and Shine Event" was an educational event to demystify the electric car movement.
The event featured both new and second-hand electric vehicles for purchase, with a range of vehicles available to test drive.
Tasmania's Good Car Company was founded by three environmental scientists who wanted to help make the price of electric vehicles more accessible for Tasmanians.
Good Car Company co-founder and logistics manager Sam Whitehead said the company had begun with a desire to remove the financial barrier to owning an electric car, with the company importing electric vehicles in bulk from overseas to keep the price down.
Mr Whitehead said he was pleased to see enthusiastic patrons turn up in droves to learn more about electric vehicles.
"It's an opportunity for people to learn and have that 'kitchen table' conversation about how and why to switch to an electric vehicle," he said.
"Having an event like this with so many people here, shows that people want to make the change.
"And we've also got a bunch of community members here who have already got an electric vehicle and they are advocates for the change as well."
Mr Whitehead said while many people were feeling disillusioned with the lack of climate action, being able to make positive choices within their own lives was a powerful motivator.
"We started Good Car Co as a way of using business for climate action, there was a while there where people lamented the lack of action," he said.
"This gives people the opportunity to take action and take control of their own emissions. And that's a lovely thing to do for people."
