Event Report

Here'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.
