Electric Car Program

Posted on: June 1st, 2015 by Tammy Finch

Electric Vehicle Day was an interesting event. If you missed the event on May 20th you missed some great information on electric cars. There were 5 different types of electric vehicles at the HOI Sierra meeting at Forest Park Nature Center. We had owners bring in their Leaf’s, Ford C-Max, Mitsubishi, and two Volts. The Volts were brought in by East Peoria Green members Bob Jorgensen and Martin Hobbs. Those who attended had the chance to ask questions, sit in the vehicles and get a feel for them and even go for a test drive. East Peoria Green member, Lori Wolf, drove 3 of the five different EV’s. After the hands on examinations in the parking lot we all went to the HOI Sierra meeting. Each driver spoke for between 5 and 10 minutes about the positives and negatives of their EV’s. By the time the evening was over we all had learned a great deal about EV’s in general and the specific characteristics of five types of electric vehicles. If you are interested in learning about EV’s contact Bob Jorgensen.
