Each year, it’s becoming increasingly clear that EVs are here to stay and represent the future of clean, pollution-free driving. A recent survey by Consumer Reports and the Union of Concerned Scientists shows that over 60 percent of prospective car buyers in the U.S. are interested in electric vehicles; public interest, across geography and income level, is growing.
The event will feature the latest crop of electric SUVs including a Tesla Model Y and Volkswagen ID. 4 along with plug-in hybrids and electric bikes. It will be held at the new free public charging stations installed in Mt Morris which allows locals and tourists to charge their car while shopping or grabbing a meal at local businesses.
Mt Morris’ event is one of more than 180 across the nation (and around the world) where electric vehicle owners and their communities will hold online webinars, electric car parades, “tailpipe-free” tailgate parties, recognition of leaders promoting EVs, launches of new public EV charging stations and other public events.
