FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — August 1, 2022
Electric Vehicle Events to Showcase the Best of EVs Both Old and New
GOLDEN, CO – Ωhm On The Range is pleased to announce a special 2-day “EVent” for enthusiasts of both classic cars and modern electric vehicles.
“State of Charge ‘22”, an educational conference highlighting the electric conversion of internal combustion vehicles, will take place on Friday, August 12, at Origin Hotel Red Rocks. This all-day symposium will focus on updating vintage car performance via electrification. Feature presentations will cover the myriad of ways to convert older vehicles to a modern electric powertrain — via salvaged OEM “swaps”, high-dollar aftermarket “crate motors”, and options in-between. Subject vehicles in attendance and on display will include models from the 1950s, ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s; cars and trucks built by DIYers and professional restoration shops. Registrants include attendees from thirteen US states coming to Colorado for this sold-out inaugural educational opportunity.
Conference sponsors include Legacy EV (AZ); AEM-EV (CA); and Fuel2Electric (AR).
On Saturday, August 13, “La Vida Volta!” will come to Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre (lower North lot), from 10 AM – 3 PM. This free, family-friendly EV Expo and Exhibitor Fair will showcase electric vehicles old and new, including the public debut of “High Voltage” — the 1965 Ford Mustang built by Arvada-based Inspire EV utilizing a ReVolt Systems high-performance motor. Also on display will be the Tesla-powered ‘72 Plymouth Satellite — “Electrollite” — which won “Best of Show” at the 2022 Holley High Voltage event in Sonoma, CA. Other vintage converted EVs to include: ‘58 Chevy Apache (UT); ‘80 Subaru Brat (TX); ‘62 Chevy Corvair (CA); ‘71 VW Type 3 (CO); ‘64 Ford Galaxie (TX); and a solar-powered electric ‘96 Toyota Land Cruiser (CO).
In addition to the converted classic vehicles there will be a sampling of “lesser seen” new OEM vehicles; not just “another Tesla car show”, expected cars include the new Lucid Air, Rivian R1T, Ford Mustang MachE, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Audi RS eTron GT and others. Staffed informational booths will be onsite from expo sponsors: Xcel Energy; CDOT – Innovative Mobility; Drive Clean Colorado – Drive Electric Colorado; and the City of Denver – Climate Action, Sustainability & Resiliency; with support from the Denver Electric Vehicle Council.
