Event Report

Not our first time around at Black & Veatch. One of the biggest engineering firms in the region, they've been a leader in promoting EVs and expanded EV charging for years. A special tip of the hat is due to Bill Roush and Peter Loftspring at B&V for their continuing and enthusiastic support of the cause. This year's event saw a steady stream of visitors and drivers from the start, driving and inspecting Tesla models X and S, the Chevy Bolt, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt and the BMWi3. Beyond current models, there were a few retro offerings as well, including EV versions of a VW Bug and an EV retrofit version of a Black late 1960s Karmann Ghia (which, sadly, was on static display only). Looking forward to 2018!
