National Drive Electric Week Event - Madison
|Day:||Thursday, September 17, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||3pm - 6pm|
Madison Farmers Market
Central Avenue between Main Street and Cook
Madison, NJ 07940
We had a great event with 12 Electric Vehicles - 2 Tesla Roadsters, 1 BMW i3, 1 Toyota RAV4, 1 Ford Focus Electric, 1 Zero Motorcycle, 1 Smart for Two Electric Drive, 3 Model S’s and an extra one that was just passing, 2 Nissan LEAF’s. We had another BMW i3 driver stop by to talk to us and he ended up joining our local chapter of the NJEAA.
We actually ran out of parking spaces at the Farmers Market and had to have three of the cars park on the road. I hadn’t anticipated that I would get more cars than I had space for, but it all worked out and it’s a good problem to have.
We had Tesla, Nissan and BMW attend for test drives. Between them they did 11 test drives. All the people that went for test drives were amazed by the cars and are definitely considering that their next vehicle will be electric.
