The Indianapolis Office of Sustainability and Knozone will host a free electric vehicle showcase that will offer the opportunity to test drive new model EVs, try out a charger and ask experts questions about EVs Oct. 22 in Indianapolis.
“There are currently a lot of misconceptions about EVs, but also a lot of movement at the state and federal levels to increase public charging options and affordability,” Morgan Mickelson, director of the Indianapolis Office of Sustainability, said in a media release. “We know our community members have questions, so we're proud to create this in-person opportunity to get them connected with answers as we work to create a more resilient future for Indianapolis."
The event will feature a live DJ, food trucks and free coffee for the first 200 attendees, all while displaying the various makes and models of electric vehicles available in the Central Indiana market.
“Demand for EVs is surging in Indianapolis, so this event arrives at a time when many residents are considering their first, if not second, electric vehicle,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said in the media release. “And while I'm sure they're mostly swayed by benefits like reducing air pollution and lowering fuel and maintenance costs, these cars also represent the latest in automotive technology, something that's always been important in Indianapolis.”
The EV showcase will take place from noon to 5 p.m. at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 100 W. 86th Street. No registration is required.
