We had 4 Teslas, 4 Nissan Leafs, 4 Chevy Volts, a Twike, a Chevy S-10 conversion, '74 VW beetle conversion and a plug in Prius conversion.
ON Saturday the 20th in KC, MO we had 2 Teslas, 3 Leafs, a Twike, a BMW 325i conversion and 1 electric bike. We had about 25 people at our static display. We then paraded thru the Country Club Plaza where the annual Art Fair was in full swing. The Twike led the way and it turned a lot of heads.
Lots of new EV drivers were encouraged to join the local chapter and help promote electric transportation.
Sprint has added 15 new charging stations to their Overland Park Campus. The former CEO purchased a Tesla and the charging station project jumped to the head of the list.
