Event ReportEven though we had a smaller NDEW event last fall, April 30th, 2022 marked 3 years since the Blue Ridge EV Club had hosted an in person outdoor Drive Electric Earth Day event at the Asheville Outlets. Thanks to our hosts The Asheville Outlets and many sponsors and supporters like Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Sugar Hollow Solar, and WNC Tesla Owners Group, we came back with an electrifying jolt. With 50 + electric vehicles on display including a Rivian Truck, a Polestar II, Volve XC40, Mach Es, a Smart For Two EV, a Ford E-Transit, Ioniq 5s, ID.4s, EV 6s, a RAV 4 PHEV, many Teslas, an Ipace, some classics like the original Leaf, 2012 Volts, the old faithful Chevy Bolt, the atmosphere was fun filled and electric! In addition, there were one, two, and three wheel e-scooters, bikes, including the Huck moped/motorcycle locally made in our very own North Carolina. Local university students with the Critical Services Microgrid brought their renovated solar electric golf cart to add to the fun. Organizers from nearby areas such as Tennessee and the Triad area of NC also attended.
