Evolve KY shows off advantages of electric cars in Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - They have zero emissions, no exhaust system and run off on batteries.

Members of Evolve KY are showing off the features and benefits of electric cars this weekend at Flea Off Market.

People can look inside, ask questions about mileage and battery life, and experience the quiet ride.

The group's president says his yearly maintenance is about $16 for his Nissan Leaf, and that's just to rotate his tires.

"Much simpler as there's an electric engine, there's batteries and wheels ... that's pretty much it," said Stuart Ungar, president of Evolve KY. "There's no transmission, oil changes, no ever going to the gas station which is huge. And it's just a lot of fun to drive."

Louisville Drive Electric Week runs Sept.12-20.
