Electric vehicle convention held in Cape Girardeau
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - EVTV Motor Verks presented the Electric Vehicle Conversion Convention at the EVTV World Headquarters in Cape Girardeau.
According to a release from EVTV Motor Verks, the five-day event running from September 13 - 17 featured networking opportunities, educational sessions, hands-on time in the shop, an autocross, a car show, a parade and a drag race.
This event is said to be one that continues to challenge the conventional wisdom that still stands today. The owner of EVTV Motor Verks, Jackie Rickard, said her passion for Electric Vehicles stems from her late father.
“Its been wonderful because there’s been so much support,” said Rickard. “The original plan was to do this with dad and learn the business in and out with him and just spend that time together. But with his passing, I decided to keep on with the plan and still step into it.”
This event has been happening annually for the last six years.
