Cumulatively, all vehicles present had just over 300,000 miles of all-electric driving. Models in attendance included: TeslaFordVW, Volvo, KiaHyundaiToyotaChrysler, and Mitsubishi! Numerous residents came out with great interest about electrified vehicles. Many left with a genuine education experience. This was also the largest variety of makes and models yet present at a City NDEW event.
