Event ReportHere's a heartfelt thanks to Maryville College for once again hosting a Drive Electric Earth Day event. In just over 2 hours, EV owners were able to visit with 150 non owners and answer their questions. Those owners generously shared their time and knowledge - and their vehicles. We had Chevys (Bolt, Bolt EUV, and Volt), Fords (F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-e), Kia EV6, Teslas (Models 3, Y, and X), Volkswagen iD.4, and a Zero motorcycle.

This is an opportunity to talk directly with electric vehicle (EV) owners about their real world experiences with electric vehicles. Want to know what it's like to take a long road trip in an electric car? Our members have thousands of miles of road trip experiences. Curious about how to find a charger on the road and how long it takes to charge? The answers are here. What about maintenance? There's very little maintenance needed, and owners can tell you why.
You can see and compare various models of EVs in one place. Owners will have vehicles for show. Expected owner vehicles include Chevrolet Bolt and Volt, Ford Mustang Mach-e and F-150 Lightning, Kia EV-6, Nissan LEAF, Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Models 3, X, and Y, and Zero electric motorcycle.
