ENTERPRISE, Ala. (April 15, 2023) – Not long after purchasing a Tesla, Steve Johnson and his family took the electric vehicle on a long road trip.
“We thought we were crazy in Alabama to get an EV,” said Johnson, co-leader of the Wiregrass chapter of Drive Electric Alabama and owner of Wiregrass EV Charging. “The first thing we did was take a road trip to Missouri, and it basically cost us nothing. It turned out great.”
Johnson later bought a Rivian pick-up truck to replace his full-sized, gas-powered truck and said he’s put 23,000 miles on it less than year. He showed off the Rivian at Saturday’s Wiregrass Drive Electric Alabama Earth Day EVent at Johnny Henderson Park in Enterprise as part of the Weevil City Cruisers’ 26th Annual Car Show.
The EVent gave Johnson and other EV owners the opportunity to showcase their EVs and talk 1-on-1 with anyone interested in learning more about EVs.

This will be first time ever for EVs to participate in the Weevil City Car Show. The time as come for EVs to step up and educate the public about the thrill of owning and driving an electric vehicle. What a great opportunity for EV owners to answer questions and let folks kick the tires on their vehicles.
