Event Report

Earth Day 2023 was a tremendous success, thanks in no small part to the hard work of our dedicated volunteers. The Drive Electric Columbus EV display was one of the event's highlights, showcasing the latest in electric vehicle technology and offering attendees the chance to learn more about the benefits of EVs. The display was a hit with visitors of all ages, from electric cars to trucks.

Our volunteers were instrumental in making the display such a success. They spent countless hours preparing their personal vehicles, setting up the display, and engaging with visitors throughout the day. Their enthusiasm and passion were contagious, and they inspired many attendees to consider switching to electric vehicles.

We are incredibly grateful for the contributions of all our volunteers, and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work and dedication. Without them, our Drive Electric Earth Day 2023 would not have been the success that it was. Our display included a variety of vehicles: Chevy Bolt, Tesla Model 3s, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Chevy Bolt EUV, Rivian R1Ts, BMW i3, Chevy Volt, Kia Niro EV, Ford F-150 Lightnings, Polestar, and Rivian R1S. We appreciate all the owners who volunteered their vehicles to be in the showcase.
