General Comments:  Wonderful partnership of EVOLVE KY, Kentucky's EV Advocacy Group and the Tesla Owners of Kentucky to organize and put on the event.  Special Thanks to LGE-KU for the use of their parking lot.  In addition to being there to hand out gifts/mementos, the Maintenance guy stayed and helped for the entire event.  All four of Lexington's TV stations came out and did interviews and took rides in EVs to get first hand experience.

Event Description

 

Location of the event at the bottom of this description

The Tesla Owners Club of Kentucky and EVolve KY, both non-profit organizations, are hosting an event in Lexington for the general public to see and compare a wide range of Electric Vehicles. The event will feature all vehicles that can be plugged in, and that a person can ride in or on. 

Owners and auto dealers will have numerous vehicles for show and ride and drives. Expected vehicles include Tesla (S, 3, X, Y), Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, Lucid Air, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Kia EV6, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt/Volt, VW ID4, and many more!

Be sure to check out our sister event in Louisville on Saturday, Sept 24

This is an opportunity to talk directly with electric vehicle (EV) owners about their real world experiences with electric vehicles. Want to know what it's like to take a long road trip in an electric car? Our members have thousands of miles of road trip experiences. Curious about how to find a charger on the road and how long it takes to charge? The answers are here.   What about maintenance?  There's very little maintenance needed, and owners can tell you why.

It will be at the discretion of each owner to allow attendees to enter their vehicle. It is also at their own risk to take attendees on "ride alongs". Meeting organizers are not responsible for damage to vehicles or stolen property. Attendees should be respectful of the owners property.

If you have any questions, please use  the blue "Contact" button above to send a message to the meeting organizer.
