Event Report

On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2023, the Scottsdale Electric Vehicle Association joined forces with the Town of Carefree, Arizona, to host an Earth Day Celebration to remember! 

In conjunction with many other vendors and stewards of the environment, the Scottsdale EVA hosted both a static vehicle display and ride-alongs for anyone curious, knowledgeable, or skeptical about EV’s. This EVent was conducted as a “Drive Electric Earth Day” event, coordinated by Plug In America (“PIA”).

Myths were busted, exhilarating rides taken, conversations spoken and friendships made.

John Crane, Mayor of Carefree, took a ride in a Yacht Blue Kia EV6, owned and hosted by Scottsdale EVA member and DEED coordinator, John Morrill. Thank you, John(s) for your participation in this year’s event!

2023 Earth Day, coincidentally or not, marks the 1-year anniversary of the founding of Scottsdale EVA chapter – happy birthday to our chapter!
