Event Report

National Drive Electric Week Event – Memphis

Thursday, 19 September 2019

Memphis Main Library - 3030 Polar Ave. Memphis, TN

The weather was perfect. Some clouds without any rain appeared which provided relief from the rather strong heat wave. We had a crowd of almost 50 people attending the event.

There was a good mix of people interested in electric vehicles as well as existing electric vehicle owners to show and provide test drives. Jim Kerras’ Nissan was kind enough to loan us a new Leaf and a mock up charging station. 

City Captain, Joe Ozegovich, gave a presentation as part of the Sierra Club Chickasaw Group monthly program, and was followed by a viewing of the EV’s outside for show and rides.

9 Electric vehicles were available to show and ride.

  • 2 ea Tesla Model S

  • 2 ea Nissan Leaf (Old & New)

  • 3 ea Tesla Model 3

  • 2 ea Chevy Bolt
