(Community Matters 48) EV Convert Says Both EVs and Gas Engines Are His Future

First Aired September 9, 2023

Luke Wilson is quite clear: “I was pretty much against electric vehicle ownership about ten years ago.” 

Fast forward to the summer of 2023 and Luke joined his fellow members of the West Michigan Mustang Club, showing off his 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle.

It has 30,000+ miles logged on the odometer.

In this Community Matters visit, Luke talks about how he became a self-professed EV enthusiast – and how he and his family have integrated an EV into their lives. He also offers some thoughts for those considering an EV in the future.
