NTEAA (Mike B. and Paul S.) was at the Texoma Earth Day Festival with several electric vehicles.  Mike B. worked with the Bohnam High School to bringing their electric vehicles that they made (Ford 9N Tractor and the newly converted Zero Turn Radius Lawn Tractor), Mike also brought his own Plug-In Toyota Prius that he has worked with the school’s students to build.

One guy drove up in a NEV that generated a lot of interest. It was a nice GEM car with solid doors. He parked next to us. He and his wife drove it as a daily driver in Sherman.

The Ford dealer was there and I quizzed them about the Ford electric. They didn’t have any details other than what’s on the web. The Ford is rumored to be cheaper than the Leaf with a 6 KW charger that should charge the batteries in four hours. They said they expect the car at the end of the year (meaning the beginning of next year).

Even the North Texas e-News publication did a piece on the Sherman Earth Day Festival and had pictures of the electric vehicles.  See this article here.
