Ryan Leeper sat at a Hartzler Dairy ice cream store holding a frozen cone when a lady obtained in her Nissan Leaf, turned it on and pulled away in full silence.

“I used to be like, ‘What the heck is that?'” Leeper mentioned. His noisy gas-powered automotive did not evaluate. There was no sound and no exhaust. It was an electrical automobile.

That was 2014. Regardless of a deep curiosity in EVs just like the Leaf, Leeper by no means owned one.

Seven years later, he is an EV advocate who owns a 2019 Mannequin 3 Tesla that may drive 200 miles on a single cost. 

Leeper will now host ‘Drive Electrical Earth Day’ at Native Roots Market & Cafe in Wooster to persuade those who electrical vehicles are an appropriate alternative for fuel.
