Event Report

Our 2nd year event focused on trying to show the public the wide variety of EVs available to the public.  Once again, the number of vehicles & owners that came EXCEEDED pre-registrations, so we had more than 20 models of EVs ranging from the newest arrivals such as: Audi e-Tron, Jaguar i-Pace, Hyundai Kona EV, Kia Niro EV, and Subaru Crosstrek  and  we were fortunate to have a number of classic & rarely seen EVs in attendance such as Chevy Spark EV, Honda Fit EV, Mercedes Benz B Class EV, and Tesla Roadster.

Due to factors beyond our control, we had to re-configure the event layout at the last moment.  Despite this last minute hiccup, the event went ahead as scheduled.  

Thank You to all of our owners and attendees for an outstanding event.

Event Description

 

The 2nd Annual  National Drive Electric Week West Windsor will be co-located at the West Windsor Farmers Market on Vaughn Drive (2 Vaughn Drive, Princeton, NJ 08540 according to Google Maps), adjacent to the Princeton Jct train station.  

Come and speak with current EV (Electric Vehicle) owners about their experience driving and hear directly from them about their REAL WORLD experience with common EV concerns such as:

* aren't EVs more expensive than ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles?
* isn't it a hassle to charge an EV?
* how messy is charging an EV (I don't like refueling my ICE vehicle bc of the smell and having to handle the nozzle)?
* how hard is it to charge an EV when I'm away from home?
* how would I know where to charge my EV when I'm away from home?
* don't EVs have far less driving range than ICE vehicles?
* aren't EVs expensive to maintain?
* aren't there just too small a selection of EVs on the market today?
* isn't it more expensive to insure an EV?


Last year, over 30 owners came and brought their EVs and answered questions.  

Our EV Showcase will have limited space, look for it at the rear/top of the center aisle of the West Windsor Farmers Market.

We are also looking to bring electric bicycles and motorcycles to the event so that folks can see that there are a multitude of Electric options.

Thanks for visiting and see you there.
