KauaiEV, KCC and the National Drive Electric Week are holding an EV Ride-and-Drive EVent on Saturday September 16th at the Kauai Community College Farmer’s Market. It’s a no-pressure, no-hassle opportunity at no charge.
We are offering free electric test drives or rides in several different electric vehicles, or you can just chat with EV owners.
Do you have questions about electric vehicles? Tax credits? Rebates? Charging Infrastructure? Which EV to buy? Local and state policy? Electricity cost versus gas? EVs in the visitor industry? Purchase incentives?
Do you already own an EV and would like to connect to others who drive one? Do you have suggestions or solutions?
Electric vehicles are fun to drive. They are smooth and quiet, and their high torque – even at low speeds – provides instant accelerator response. EVs are cheaper to maintain. Maintenance for EVs costs much less than for gasoline vehicles. EVs require no oil changes and have 10 times fewer moving parts than a gasoline-powered car. There’s no engine, transmission, spark plugs, valves, fuel tank, tailpipe, distributor, starter, clutch, muffler, or catalytic converter. Switching to electric vehicles is one of the biggest steps we can take to reduce our dependence on oil and cut dangerous air pollution. Each year in the US we burn roughly 121 billion gallons of oil in our passenger cars and trucks.
Drivers need to have a valid driver’s license and be at least 18 years of age and complete a Waiver of Liability.
We thank the National Drive Electric Week national organizers, Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association and the Nissan LEAF® for all their help and sponsorship.
