Event ReportAbita Springs Drive Electric Day was a roaring success! Well, EV's are really quiet, actually, but we enjoyed the sublime sounds of local bands The Flying Vaughns and the aptly named LoAmps. We were well-hydrated and fed by vendors at the Art and Farmers Market while learning about the amazing diversity of electric vehicles. The true theme of the day was that there is an EV for Everyone! No matter what your priorities, there is an EV for you! Tesla Model S, 3, and X (including one towing a 20 foot bay boat and trailer!), Honda Clarity, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Ford C Max, local Abita Buggies and even an electric bicycle were represented at the park along the Abita River.
