Event Report

Speakers: Craig Mosher, Marc Fricke, Sarah Gardner
Sponsors: City of Iowa City Climate Action Division, Johnson Clean Energy District

The event featured a lively discussion of EV basics, benefits, and key considerations for those interested in purchasing an EV as their next vehicle. The "preview event" the week prior featuring a ribbon cutting at an EV charging station with local EVs parked nearby for residents to drive past and check out was helpful in generating interest.

Event Description


Did you know there are more than 500 electric vehicles registered in Iowa City? And the number keeps growing!

Whether you're a hybrid driver who thinks your next vehicle will plug in rather than fuel up or you're a dedicated gearhead who is curious what all the fuss is about, join us to learn more from local EV drivers about this exciting technology, including:

  • Lower fuel costs
  • Less maintenance
  • High torque performance
  • Cleaner and quieter transportation

These vehicles have something for everyone, and this year so does the Iowa City National Drive Electric event! Join us for a virtual EV 101 presentation during National Drive Electric Week hosted by local drivers, which you can participate in from the comfort of your own home, or check out our preview event during Iowa City's Climate Fest, where you can cruise past some local EVs and ask drivers questions from a safe, social distance.
