Event ReportThe Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association and Maryville College had a wonderful time hosting our 2022 Drive Electric Vehicle Association Drive Electric Earth Day event. This was limited to a small show of owner vehicles on the Maryville College campus. Vehicle on hand included Tesla Model 3, Volkswagen iD.4, Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, and two motorcycles - an Energica and am Evoke. This was a great opportunity to talk with students, faculty, and the general public about the benefits of driving electric. Special thanks go to Dr. Jay Clark, Director of Environmental and Sustainability Initiatives for his enthusiastic help in bringing this about.

The Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association (KEVA) and Drive Electric Tennessee (DET) are working to make the 2022 Blount County Drive Electric Earth Day Celebration an unforgettable event.
This is an opportunity to talk directly with electric vehicle (EV) owners about their real world experiences with electric vehicles. Want to know what it's like to take a long road trip in an electric car? Our members have thousands of miles of road trip experiences. Curious about how to find a charger on the road and how long it takes to charge? The answers are here. What about maintenance? There's very little maintenance needed, and owners can tell you why.
You can see and compare various models of EVs in one place. Owners will have vehicles for show. Expected owner vehicles include Chevrolet Bolt and Volt, Energica and Evoke Urban Classic motorcycles, Nissan LEAF, and Tesla Model 3.
COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed for this event.
