EVs In The Smokies 2022

The Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association (KEVA) and Drive Electric Tennessee (DET) are excited to announce EVs In The Smokies on July 9th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Townsend Visitors Center in Townsend, Tennessee.

If you drive a gas vehicle, bring your questions and curiosity and enjoy checking out all the EVs that will be there! You will be able to talk with EV owners and learn about transitioning to clean, quiet, fast, and fun electric driving!

If you drive an EV, bring your lawn chairs and picnic blankets and enjoy a fun day hanging out in the smokies to share your enthusiasm with current and future EV owners! If your EV is a motorcycle, we’ll have extra lawn chairs for you 🙂

June or August events

Stay tuned but interesting stuff is coming!

Summer Cars and Coffee

July 24th, 2022, West Town Mall 8am-11am (get there by 7am!)

Harper Cars and Coffee at West Town Mall

Harper’s Facebook Event Listing

We like to show everyone that attends that there is an alternative to all the gasoline vehicles on display so we try to have a good showing of EVs.

We will be located near the Dillard’s entrance. We usually try to get there early at 5:00am to reserve our row of parking. However, we advise anyone that wants to join us in our EV section to get there before 7:00 am as it becomes a mad house traffic jam at that time. You may not be let in to our area after 8am. We suggest you enter the Montvue rd entrance as its easiest to get to our location. Just enter the Mall parking and turn left and follow it around to the Dillard’s entrance that faces Kingston Pike. If you plan on attending, please email Knoxville.EV.Club@gmail.com so I can maintain a car count. They typically have free food and coffee. See you all there!

Where: 7600 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919

When: By 7:00am you need to be parked near us, show goes from 8am-11am.

August Monthly Meeting

Saturday August 13th, 2022, 11am 

Agenda, Guest, and location to be determined shortly, keep checking back!

90% of all EV charging is done at home

Every EV sold today comes with a 110 volt charger. We recommend people install a 240 volt charger in their garage since the latest EVs have larger battery packs this will minimize the time it takes to charge your EV. Most people already have access to 240v in their garage as this is the typical voltage for clothes dryers.

3 cents a mile

The typical efficiency of electric vehicles is 3 miles a KWH. The average cost of a KWH of electricity in Tennessee is about 10 cents.  Simple math means you only pay 3.3 cents per mile. Even better news is that EV makers are pushing the efficiency to 4 miles or more per KWH thus making the cost even cheaper!
