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.
