Event Report

The City Vice Mayor presented a proclamation a month before the event. The City Manager presented the proclamation to kick off the event. All of the registered exhibitors came to the event. During National Drive Electric Week, but before the event the city we partnered with voted on and approved having a green committee and also voted on and approved the purchase of a public L2 charging station from sema connect that will be installed at a city beach access. The hit EVs of the show was the privately owned BMW i8 and the NASA mock up LVR moon buggy as part of the NASA display.

Event Description

 

The Space Coast EV Drivers will be partnering with the City of Satellite Beach, FL for this year's National Drive Electric Week event.  We'll be at the David R Schechter Community Center, 1089 S Patrick Dr, Satellite Beach, FL 32937 from 10 am until 4 pm answering everyone's questions about electric cars.  So bring the whole family and take a look at all the different models from the Chevy Volt to the Nissan Leaf to the Tesla Model S and everything in between!  It's free for all and includes ride and drives in the electric cars.  If you've never taken a ride in an electric car this will be a great time to see how smooth and quiet the drive can be.

Learn all about the differences in the various models like some that have a built in gasoline generator that automatically starts when the battery runs out so you can take long trips without worrying about where to plug in.  Or how the Tesla Model S can use the Supercharger stations throughout the US along highways for a super fast charge on long trips for free for life!  Pack some food, stay with friends, and leave your wallet at home!

 If you have questions about driving electric bring them to the Space Coast EV Drivers club and try to stump our members who have been driving them every day for several years.  Sign up here as an attendee or volunteer if you want to help out during the event.  Thanks for visiting and we'll see you in September!
