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.

Electric vehicles are not just great for clean air and the environment in general, they are also 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 than 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. It is much more convenient to simply plug in when you arrive home than to stop by a gas station to fill your gas tank, and many EV owners also have Solar PV for added environmental benefit, or charge during noon hours when KIUC's energy mix is much cleaner (solar).
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. Even in places that burn exclusively coal for their electricity, EVs are cleaner than gas cars because they are so much more efficient.
