Event Report

We had a bit smaller event this year with less visibility from the road but more passersby since we were in the parking lot of the Sedgwick County Zoo. 

We did have a good variety of EVs including a brand new Lucid Air. We also had a car hand built at Make ICT, a local organization of people who create, in all possible ways, new things. Last year it wouldn't start but this year he clocked it at 70 mph. See photo here:

We also had one of our City's Electric Buses stay with us all during the event and the Transit Director, Michael Tann come and talk about the future of public transit in Wichita. 

Check the walk through done during the event. We also caught a Tesla X "dance" which brought applause.
