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.
