If you’d like to test drive up to nine different electric vehicles (EV) in one place and learn about new rebates, the KCP&L Clean Charge Network is offering a unique opportunity on Saturday, June 9 in Kansas City.
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.
Additionally, KCP&L customers and employees can qualify for a $3,000 discount on the 2018 Nissan Leaf through June 30, and all EV buyers are eligible for up to a $7,500 federal tax credit.
The KCP&L Electric Car Guest Drive event will include representatives from each EV manufacturer to answer questions and provide test drives of these EVs:
- BMW 13
- Chevrolet Bolt
- Chevrolet Volt
- Ford Focus Energi
- Mitsubishi Outlander
- Nissan LEAF
- Tesla Model 3
- Tesla Model S
- Tesla Model X
The event will be held from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at Penn Valley Park. To be able to test drive the EVs, register in advance at KCP&L Electric Car Guest Drive.
