CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Frederick Walker is no stranger to driving electric vehicles. The past few weeks he’s been testing out a new one.
“I currently have the Volkswagen ID.4, and I’ve been driving it around for about two weeks so I can tell and teach the next person what they need to do to be safe,” Walker said.
Walker is a fleet manager for “Rural Reimagined.” This means he will help train and educate people when it comes to learning the ins and outs of EVs.
The project through Tennessee Tech University, which received federal funding, has a goal of helping introduce EVs to under-privileged areas.
