Event Report

This event was made special by the citizens who brought their EVs to educate neighbors about their experiences. Holding the event during the city's farmers market was a great opportunity to engage with people who didn't expect to be discussing electric vehicles, but who came away with a better understanding and new appreciation thanks to the avid support of our participants!

Event Description


All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2021 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

Elk River Municipal Utilities and the City of Elk River will have two vehicles on display during the farmers market for people to inspect and ask questions about. The vehicles on display will be a Chevy Bolt which is 100% electric, and a Mitsubishi Outlander which is a hybrid sport utility vehicle. During the event people can stop by and learn about the vehicles, time of use rates, costs of ownership, and range capabilities of the two types of vehicles.
