Event Report

On Saturday, April 23, 2022, an electric car exhibit was staged during the Earth Day Festival and Plant Sale at Springs Preserve museum complex.  A dozen electric car models were exhibited and accompanied by their owners who related their ownership experiences to interested attendees. Electric car models included an original Tesla Roadster, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model X, Lucid Air Dream, Jaguar i-Pace, Chevrolet Bolt, Chevrolet Spark EV, Nissan LEAF, Ford Mustang Mach E, Jeep Wrangler 4XE Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, 1987 Mitsubishi Mighty Max electric truck conversion, and a DeLorean DMC electric car conversion.

On Sunday, April 24, 2022, the Las Vegas Electric Vehicle Association staffed an exhibit table that featured educational information about electric cars and charging station infrastructure within the state of Nevada. The electric car educational exhibit was part of a Climate Solutions Forum discussion, that was hosted by the Las Vegas chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby.  

Speakers and other exhibitors during the forum included Nevada Assemblyman Howard Watts; Samantha Baker, Manager of the All-In Clark County Sustainability Program; Kirsten Stasio, Executive Director of the Nevada Clean Energy Fund; a speaker from Climate Reality Project; Les Lazareck, Manager of the Home Energy Connection, Sierra Club Toiyabe Chapter representatives, Friends of Nevada Wilderness and others.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make both events a success!
