ScienceFest: Scenes From PEEC Electric Car Show Today

Los Alamos County’s fleet maintence employee Matthew Lengyel checks out a County’s hybrid car, which is one of two hybrid cars in the County’s motor pool. The Ford C-Max was displayed during the Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s electric car show today in the parking lot at the Los Alamos Nature Center. In addition to hybrid cars, electric cars, electric bicycles and even a home-made electric motorcycle were showcased. There also were a number of cars available for test drives.

Additionally, she said PEEC offers electric car chargers so if anyone used them, PEEC staff would approach them about showcasing their car in the show. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/

Mike Warren, left, chats about his Tesla Model X with Don Casperson during the car show. Warren said he has owned the car a little more than a year. Since the car is electric, Warren said it is really quiet and requires almost no maintence. He added the car can drive to and from Albuquerque and not need to be charged. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/
