Event Report

This 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.

Event Description


All attendees and volunteers are required to follow local health guidelines. It is recommended that everyone wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all Drive Electric Earth Day 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

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.
