Huntsville's event was small this year due to limited availability of volunteer staff, but we had ten (10) vehicles and numerous visitors who came and went throughout the 6-hour event. Several expressed surprise at the current state of the EV industry as well as interest in the newly available offerings. We look forward to a more concerted effort next year and are already making plans for more effective promotions.
