Electric vehicles gain favor, but remain scarce on Chattanooga roads


“The Tennessee Valley Authority built an electric vehicle test track in Chattanooga in the 1970s and a local company, Advanced Vehicle Systems, assembled some of the first all-electric shuttle buses in the country, some of which still operate on CARTA’s downtown shuttle routes in Chattanooga. CARTA continues to promote electric vehicles both with free solar-powered charging stations across the Chattanooga area and with support for an electric car sharing platform known as Green Commuter.”
