EV Information at Drive Electric NWA

Anna Pop
The event featured vehicles from companies like Rivian and Tesla, as well as traditional car makers like Ford.

Electric vehicles are becoming more popular in the state and nation. Plans for Arkansas’ statewide network of charging stations were approved earlier this month and before that, Canoo, an electric car company, relocated its headquarters in Northwest Arkansas. The Drive Electric NWA event this past Saturday aimed to answer questions about ownership and infrastructure.
