Event Report

We had a diverse group of EV's at the DEED event this year, including ones from Chevrolet, Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Tesla, and Toyota. People were able to see the cars, ask actual owners and dealers about them, both their costs and benefits, and hopefully make some converts. We're already planning an even bigger and better event next year!

Event Description


The purpose of our Drive Electric Earth Day event is to educate the public about the direct personal benefits of driving a plug-in electric vehicle.  It's intended to bring interested people together with experienced EV owners/drivers so they can hear first hand from someone who knows the most about the real world experience of driving electric.  

That's why we chose to hold our event this year in conjunction with our 4th Annual Earth Day Expo event here in Rapid City so we could reach as many people as possible.  It will include lots of family fun, games, crafts, music, food, and prizes as well as the raffle of a brand new mountain bike!  So please come on April 27th to learn about all the plug-in EV's available right here in western SD and to enjoy all the other fun activities going on at our Earth Day Expo!
