Event Report

The Knoxville EV Association (KEVA), East Tennessee Clean Fuels (ETCF), and Black Bear Solar Institute's National Drive Electric Week Event at Whole Foods on Saturday, September 16 was a great event!

We had 15 EVs, with nine different models/styles represented (Chevy Volt & Bolt, Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model X & S, Honda Ensight, and 3 custom built vehicles). Whole Foods' two EV charging stations were also front and center. We gave over 55 ride and drives, with one of East Tennessee's first Chevy Bolts stealing the show with dozens of test drives! We estimate approximately 150 people participated and attended, and over 175 one-on-one conversations took place between our volunteers and members of the public about EVs.

Our local NBC affiliate featured the event on their website and on their broadcast that evening
