LAWRENCE ELECTRIC VEHICLE SHOWCASE – 4TH ANNUAL
Sunday, 2 October 2022, 10:00am-2:00pm – FREE
South Park, northeast corner, Lawrence KS 66044
Sustainability Action Network welcomes our two co-sponsors this year to the fourth annual Lawrence Electric Vehicle Showcase: the City of Lawrence Sustainability Office and the Transit System, and the Sustainability Science Fair. So far there are 23 electric cars coming including a Lucid Air, lots of electric bicycles from three bicycle shops, a Ford F-150 Lightning pickup, a Rivian pickup, and a brand new Gillig battery-electric bus from Lawrence Transit.
The public will be able to talk with the EV owners, and learn the advantages of driving an EV. The U.S. transportation sector now produces more climate heating emissions than does the electric generation sector. Plug-in EVs are zero carbon when charged with renewable energy, and greater motive efficiency means lower carbon footprint, even when charged by coal fired electricity. EVs get 100mpg equivalent or better, and the typical driving range of various makes is from 100 miles to 315 miles (Teslas up to 400 miles).
