Kingman, Arizona

ArizonaMuseum

In 2014 the Route 66 Electric Vehicle Museum opened inside the Powerhouse Visitor Center in Kingman, Arizona. The 3,600-square-foot space displays a variety of vehicles on loan from the Historic Electric Vehicle Foundation, whose purpose is to preserve the history of and examples of electric vehicles from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century.

Vehicles on display include a 1909 Ellwell-Parker baggage tug, the world’s first electric street rod (built by Wilde Evolutions in 1995), a 1930 Detroit Electric, celebrity-owned EV golf carts, and several California-manufactured electric microcars from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s.

One of the biggest highlights on display is a Buckeye Bullet 2.5 that impressively takes up much of the length of the room. It was once the fastest EV in the world, clocking in at 307.6 mph but was eventually outdone by the Buckeye Bullet 3, which completed a test run at 341.26 mph in September 2016.

Admission to the Route 66 Electric Vehicle Museum is included in your ticket to the Arizona Route 66 Museum.
