Event Report

We had a wide range of electric vehicles from e-bikes to a pick-up truck, to the City's electric bus! We handed out the NDEW swag as well as Climate Action swag. The drivers and staff had some wonderful conversations with attendees.

Event Description


In the last year, EV ownership in our area and the use of our EV charging stations has grown. Why? We can think of a few reasons:

  • Lower fuels costs

  • Less maintenance

  • High torque performance

  • Quieter and cleaner transportation

Whether you already own an EV and want to share the love or you are EV curious and want a chance to talk to real, local drivers, this event is for you!

There will also be information on Iowa City resources for EVs, including the locations of local charging stations, incentives from the federal government for EV purchases and more.

This event is location in the small parking lot the Eastside of City Hall (410 E. Washington Street, Iowa City, IA 52240) across the street from New Pioneer.
