A Look Into the Colorado Springs Electric Vehicle Club

Con­nect­ing with an EV Club is a great way for EV own­ers or EV enthu­si­asts to meet and con­nect with like-mind­ed peo­ple. There are a vari­ety of EV clubs around Col­orado, and Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado is pleased to high­light the Col­orado Springs Elec­tric Vehi­cle Club. 

Mac McCauley, founder, and Wil­son Hitch­ings, web admin, of the Col­orado Springs EV Club (CSEVC) shared some infor­ma­tion about their EV club based in the Pikes Peak region. Mac found­ed the club in 2015 after real­iz­ing the lack of com­mu­ni­ty around elec­tric vehi­cles in his area. He began by email­ing peo­ple he knew that owned EVs, and after con­nect­ing with Wil­son through a shared EV charg­ing app,, the CSEVC blog was born. The blog was cre­at­ed to pro­mote the own­er­ship and use of elec­tric vehi­cles in and around Col­orado Springs. This non-polit­i­cal club is inclu­sive of all types of elec­tric vehi­cles, makes, and mod­els, includ­ing hybrids, plug-ins, and even elec­tric bikes or motorcycles. 

Recent­ly, CSEVC host­ed an EV edu­ca­tion event and ral­ly at the Uni­ver­si­ty Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­ter in Col­orado Springs and an EV meet­up in Gold­en dur­ing Nation­al Dri­ve Elec­tric Week. They also attend out-of-state events, such as the recent Flat­land Car Show in Rus­sel, Kansas, a Thun­der on the Plains Car, Truck and Cycle show in Hays, Kansas, and an EV meet­up with the Grand Junc­tion EV Club. CSEVC hopes to host more road trips in the future as more charg­ing sta­tions are added. In the past, they have gone on dri­ves to the Tes­la Fac­to­ry in Fre­mont, Cal­i­for­nia, Bishop’s cas­tle in South­ern Col­orado, and up Pikes Peak with their club members. 

Today, CSEVC cur­rent­ly holds Fri­day lunch­es every week at noon, and are host­ing Zoom meet­ings every Mon­day at noon. CSEVC prides itself on the diver­si­ty of its elec­tric vehi­cles and always wel­comes new members.
