EVolve KY is a group of Electric Vehicle (EV) enthusiasts that has been meeting monthly in Louisville for more than a year.
The inaugural LOU DEW — Louisville Drive Electric Week — is one of more than 150 events around the country where electric vehicle owners and advocates are holding electric car parades, “tailpipe-free” tailgate parties, ride-and-drives, and other public events.
LOU DEW will kick off during the September Flea Off Market, Sept. 5-6, with a showcase of cars, test drives, information and experts available. That event will be 11 a.m.-5 p.m. both days with a rain date of the following weekend.
Other LOU DEW events include a showing of an electric car-themed movie at Sullivan University on the evening of Sept. 12, and a booth at the Gaslight Festival on the weekend of Sept. 18.
Members of the club have the Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus EV, and Mitsubishi EV. One DIY-ed an electric motorcycle and another converted a ’70s-era Porsche to run on electricity.
