Event Description


In the last year, EV ownership in our area has grown by 50%. Why? We can think of a few reasons:

  • Lower fuels costs

  • Less maintenance

  • High torque performance

  • Quieter and cleaner transportation

Whether you already own an EV and want to share the love or you are EV curious and want a chance to talk to real, local drivers, this event is for you!

There will also be information on Iowa City resources for EVs, including the locations of local charging stations, incentives from MidAmerican for EV purchases and more.
