Greenfield Car Show
“Remembering the Past, while Looking to the Future”
Drive $mart Wisconsin is proud to have been invited to host the EV Display for the City of Greenfield’s 7TH Annual Car Show on Saturday, Sept. 9 at Konkel Park in Greenfield WI. This is the first time that a major Classic Car Show will have Electric Vehicles on display in Wisconsin. We expect over 400 classic cars to be on display and 1,500 attendees for this year’s Show.
Drive $mart Wisconsin has hosted over 10 DEED/NDEW events in the past and anticipates around 25 Electric Vehicles on display at this event. Any Electric Vehicle from the year 2000 to the present can be in this Car Show, which is not an official NDEW event. We look forward to having some 1st generation Electric Vehicles on display. There is a nominal City of Greenfield $10 registration fee for any EV in the Show that can be paid the day of the Show at check-in.
Drive $mart Wisconsin believes that this is a great opportunity to have area residents learn about EVs, their benefits, their costs, and their downsides from the best source available, EV owners themselves. This is an opportunity to, one on one, have EV owners help dismiss the false claims out there about EVs and to begin the education of the public about clean transportation options.
Drive $mart Wisconsin will also be promoting its $mart Eco-Driving skills that can save ICE drivers 10 to 30% on gas costs and lower emissions at the same time. These same $mart Eco-Driving skills can extend the range of any EV by 10-30% as well. D$W members will be on hand to talk about these skills and hand out information on $mart Eco-Driving as well.
Anyone displaying an Electric Vehicle at this Greenfield Car Show will appreciate joining in remembering some of the classic cars of the past that we grew up with, but more importantly, give the attendees a chance to glimpse the Electric Vehicles that are currently available and the future of transportation.
Even if you do not own an Electric Vehicle, we are also looking for volunteers that can help make this EV Display part of this Greenfield Car Show a success while at the same time learning about EVs yourself. In the event of rain on Sept.9, this Greenfield Car Show will be held the following Saturday, Sept. 16.
D$W looks forward to seeing you at the Show.
