Event Report

This year's event went very well! We had Nissan, Ford, BMW, Porsche, Tesla, and Chevy bring cars. Team Powersports bring Zero Motorcycles. Organic Transit bring an ELF. And Electric Scooter City bring three electric bikes. We also had many EV owners bring their cars to display. A highlight of the event was having NRG EVgo make an announcement about where they plan to install charging stations around the Raleigh area. The EV drivers were very excited to see where new DC Fast Charge stations will be going. News 14 Carolina (Time Warner Cable) also showed up and did a television news segment on the event.
