Free Drive Electric Event in Kalamazoo
Public welcome! Great opportunity to see what all the excitement is about the latest Electric Vehicles. Cars, trucks, bikes, buses,... EVs are the new wave in transportation. See a variety of EVs up close and in action. Drivers and other knowledgeable folks will be on site to answer any and all questions. Representatives from Consumers Energy will also be there to share info on home charging incentive programs. No schedule, just come any time between 10 and 3 and stay as long or as short as you like.
In addition to the usual giveaways, we'll make an award to the EV which travels farthest to get to the show, and random drawings for two pairs of passes to the National Studebaker Museum in South Bend, Indiana. Need not be present to win, but do sign in at the registration tent on site.
Fully Electric School Bus!
Kalamazoo Public School district will have their LION Electric school bus on display during the entire event. A KPS driver will be present to answer questions.
We'll be easy to find in the SE sector of the parking lot of a locally owned grocery store. The store includes a cafe, but there are other places nearby to get food and refreshments, and we are only about 5 minutes south of downtown Kalamazoo. See updates on this page and at /KalamazooEVA/ on Facebook. This should be a great event, if the weather holds. Big 'thank you' to our hosts at the Midtown Fresh Market.
Be sure to check in when you arrive, and be prepared to give us a good estimate of how far you came. It is your choice whether to take people for rides or just do a static display. For safety, we will try to segregate the display vehicles from the ones that may be going in and out of the parking lot, so let us know your preference when you arrive. Thanks for spreading the word.
