Hear from two members of the local electric vehicle organization, Drive Electric RVA, about their experiences owning plug-in vehicles. Whether you own an EV already or are just hearing about them for the first time, you can come and share your own stories and questions. Issues like charging availability and charge time, as well as the different models and their costs, both initial and over their lifetime, will be addressed. The environmental impact of driving EVs vs. gasoline vehicles will also be explored. Following the meeting, there will be a car show.
