Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association

We are Knoxville’s leading non-profit dedicated to educating the public on the benefits of driving electric. Functioning as a regional chapter of the Electric Auto Association since 2010. Our monthly meetings and events are great places to come talk to daily EV drivers and have your questions answered as well as a community for EV enthusiasts. If you have never driven an EV we would love the opportunity to put you in the drivers seat at any of our meetings or various EVents.

Upcoming EVents

Here’s a quick snapshot of what we have going on in the next few months.

Knoxville Auto Show Exhibit and Ride and Drive Opportunity

February 4-6, 2022

We have decided to skip participation in the Auto show this year due to the surge in covid-19. The health and safety of our members is more important than any EV event. We hope to be involved next year and plan to focus on some good April events for Earth month.

Dogwood Arts Home and Garden Show 2022

February 11-13, 2022

We were excited to be involved with the Home and Garden show for the first time, but we decided to skip the event this year due to the surge in covid-19. The health and safety of our members is more important than any EV event. We hope to be involved next year and plan to focus on some good April events for Earth month.

February Monthly Meeting on Zoom

February 12th, 2022

We will have our monthly meeting on Zoom and we are currently working on some interesting guest speakers. More details as we get closer including a registration link for the Zoom meeting. Check back later.

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!
