Event Report

Bruce Westlake, President, Michigan Electric Vehicle Association, moderated a panel discussion of long-term EV enthusiasts and experts. An audience of 38 was on hand and engaged in a lively Q&A after the panel. Then everyone went out to the library parking lot, admired the cars, took rides, and drove a few.

Event Description

 

This event is at the LEED-certified Hastings Public Library and hosted by library staff and KEVA , a local group who receives sponsorship from the Southwest Michigan Group of the Sierra Club, Nissan, the Electric Auto Association and Plug in America .  Among the core value of KEVA is that real-life owners of electric vehicles are the best ambassadors of the electric car experience and benefits. 

Hastings is a good mid point for EV owners.  This event will be offering an EV panel of DIY and industry builders, real-world drivers, as well as distance travelers. This event is searching for someone with cross country road experience to sit in the panel. 

Sign up now to bring your vehicle and continuing sharing your vehicle with the interested public.
