Tennessee Tech is leading a project to develop a rural EV testbed to demonstrate and evaluate the applications of EVs over a diverse range of activities serving a rural and largely economically depressed UC region in TN, to help fleet owners make right decision in EV adoption in rural areas before making significant financial investment. This project will serve as a proof-of-concept implementation to support knowledge gaining, transfer, outreach and education on EVs for rural applications, and to compliment DOE Vehicle Technology Office’s existing EV data set with detailed EV operation and use data dedicated specifically to the challenges and needs associated with rural communities.

This Ride-And-Drive event will give all participants a chance to test drive an EV first hand. Participants will also gain current information on charging, maintaining, and future use of EV’s. Finally, participants will have the chance to use an EV for two weeks free of charge.

 

When:  10 am – 3 pm CT, Saturday, Oct. 02, 2021

Where:  Tennessee Tech Campus, 320 University Drive, Cookeville TN, 38501

Why:   EVs are easier, cleaner and cheaper to fuel.

EVs are fun to drive! You can’t understand that until you drive one.

COVID-19 Friendly: All EVs will be appropriately spaced so that you can stay socially distanced while attending and learning, and hand sanitizer will be available. Masks are required to be worn when attendees are not able to stay socially distanced.
