If you’d like to test drive electric vehicles (EVs) without the sales pressure and learn about EV discounts, the KCP&L Clean Charge Network is offering a unique opportunity on Saturday, June 22 in Kansas City.
Individuals can sign up for a one-hour test drive of the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 22 at the KCP&L Connect Center, 1710 Paseo, Kansas City, MO. To test drive the EVs, register in advance at KCP&L Electric Car Guest Drive.
Additionally, KCP&L customers and employees can qualify for a limited-time $3,500 discount on the 2019 Nissan Leaf and a $1,000 discount on the 2019 Chevy Bolt. EV buyers may also be eligible for up to a $7,500 federal tax credit.
According to the Clean Charge Network, plug-in EVs can cost two-thirds less than gas-powered vehicles to operate. They have no tailpipe emissions, which accounts overall for 26 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Over the past few years, EV manufacturers have reduced “range anxiety” by increasing the distance that each EV will go on a charge. In Kansas City, KCP&L has installed more than 1,000 EV charging stations, which is the more than any other city in the United States.
Learn more about the KCP&L EV discounts at the Clean Charge Network and the federal tax credit from the U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy.
