Kingman’s FREE to attend Drive Electric Earth Day event will feature the most diverse range of electric vehicles on display at any of the 200 Drive Electric events being planned nation-wide. In addition to meeting and talking with real-world drivers who advocate adopting EV technology, attendees will be given FREE admission to the Route 66 EV Museum.
The Museum’s EV display of about 25 EVs represents only a quarter of the Historic Electric Vehicle Foundation’s (HEVF) world’s largest collection of historically significant EVs. In addition to the EVs listed below under Expected Display Vehicles, attendees will be able to view up close and personal these EVs in HEVF's collection:
- 1930 Detroit Electric,
- rare 2002 Toyota RAV4 EV,
- a record setting EV racer,
- Willie Nelson’s Rolls style golf cart
- and more.
To end the event with a flourish around 2:00 p.m., the Foundation will unveil its latest historically significant EV acquisition, an extremely rare 2008 Tesla Roadster (# 480). Tesla sold a total of approximately 2,450 of these pioneering EVs and about half of those were sold outside of the U.S.
There will also be a presentation about the Aptera solar powered electric car currently in development.
