Event Report

The Lawrence Electric Vehicle Showcase was organized by the Sustainability Action Network with the help of our co-sponsor, The Sierra Club/Wakarusa Group, and hosted at the Hy-Vee grocery store on Clinton Parkway. Hy-Vee has three level 2 Charge Point charging stations.

We had 19 cars total, plus 2 electric bicycles. The showcase participants displayed 7) Tesla Model 3, 2) Tesla Model S, 3) Nissan LEAFs, 3) Chevrolet Bolts, 1) Toyota Prius Prime, 1) Ford C-MAX Energi, 1) Honda Clarity, and 1) Chrysler Pacifica. The Prius Prime was brought by the local Toyota dealer. Several cars came from a distance - Topeka KS, Kansas City, Merriam KS, Prairie Village KS, and the farthest from Manhattan KS, 75 miles away.

The Lawrence City Commission issued a Mayor's Proclamation for our Drive Electric Day. Our estimated attendance was 150.  Mayor Lisa Larsen attended on her electric bicycle.
