Electric cars aren't a common sight in rural Kansas — yet.

But the town of Winfield — population 12,000, about 45 minutes southeast of Wichita — knows that will inevitably change.

"We’re going to see the electrification of vehicles across the country," said City Manager Taggart Wall. "So how do we stay on the leading edge of that and learn as the industry grows, rather than try to be retroactive and catch up?"

Electric buses will soon be on Wichita’s streets.
