Lexington, KY celebrated NDEW with Whole Foods Market new location and 2 EV chargers called ‘Electric Vehicle Day’. We had 18 vehicles from 8 EV models. EVolve KY group received comments from two EV owners who participated:
We had a grand showing in Lexington. There were two tents, Tesla Model Xs and Ss, Chevy Bolt and Volt, Electric Fiat, Ford Focus, Nissan Leafs, and a VW E-Golf. We gave numerous rides and talked to a horde of interested folks. Many of these folks took quite an interest and questioned us at length. Over 30 people gave their email addresses for more information.
WE enjoyed the NDEW event in Lexington. I gave about 30 to 40 people rides and everyone seemed to really enjoy them. I was glad Rod Hatfield Chevrolet come by with a new Bolt, they have only been in this area for a few weeks. The variety of EVs on hand was truly outstanding!
Kentucky is Evolving!

Join us for our second annual EV event in Lexington. Come with your EV or check out all the EVs in the parking lot, free giveaways under the tent. We will be close to Whole Food's new EV chargers, with complimentary snacks and drinks while you grocery shop and then talk with EV owners about their experiences and the latest news on electric vehicles in Kentucky!

I can not promise all of these vehicle models will be at any one of our events
(each member decides which event they will attend with their car), but we
normally have several models at any one event or at our regular monthly
meeting. Please come out as see some of the different EV options available in
