Event ReportThis private event entitled "How We Got Here; Where We're Going," was designed and presented by PVEAA for residents of a retirement community. A static display of 8 EVs, representing a range of unusual and/or popular EVs, from a Fiat 500E to a 2022 Mustang Mach E, and e-bicycles was followed by a short history of EVs, images and video clips of old and current EVs, a discussion about where and how to charge EVs and, finally, a feature length film about developments in electric vehicles over the recent past. Attended by 15 residents, this event is expected to be the first of many.

This private event is part of PIA's Drive Electric Earth Day initiative and was designed for residents of a retirement community. It will consist of an introduction to a selection of old and new electric vehicles, including passenger cars and e-bikes, with owners available to share information about driving electric and charging an EV at home or on the road. The screening of a documentary film on the recent history of EVs will be followed with Q&A.
