Cool Davis and the Davis Electric Vehicle Association(DEVA) had an enthusiastic presence at Picnic Day Parade this year. Members from across the community including the Raging Grannies, International House, and Davis City Council members showed up in celebration!

DEVA members tailed the Cool Davis parade group in their EVs which included the Fisker Ocean, Mazda MX-30, Chevy Bolt, Tesla Roadster, and the Tesla Cyber Truck!

Concurrently, the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies(ITS) collaborated with Cool Davis and DEVA to host an EV exhibit at the UC Davis Alumni Center. Attendees learned all about EV ownership/charging and transportation research from ITS. The EV models on display were a Hyundai Ioniq 5, Rivian R1, Tesla Roadster, VW e-Golf, and a 1974 Triumph Spitfire EV conversion.

Picnic Day 2024 was abundant with learning opportunities for all things sustainability, electric vehicles, and transportation!
