Event ReportWe had an electric pick-up truck from a dealer that definitely drew attention.
An opportunity to learn all about Electric Cars in one place. Talk to owners about how much fun they are to drive, how little they cost to run, why we all have a big grin on our faces when we drive them, and all the ways they've improved our lives ... like always leaving home with a full "tank" of fuel!
If you're an owner; join in, we'd love to have you there! Park with us, share your experiences with fellow owners, and help educate and influence a new crop of future EV owners and enthusiasts. Come whenever you want and stay as long as you want. The more the merrier!
The event is in conjunction with the annual Chatham Sustainability Fair and in the same parking lot as the weekly Chatham Farmer's Market. So there are plenty of other things to see and do even after the event or if you want a break from standing around your car. Local dealerships will take part in an “EV EXPO” to show off 20 exciting new models of fully-electric and hybrid cars and bicycles. Attendees are expected to include Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Lucid, Mini, Polestar, Porsche, Toyota, VW, Volvo, and more. Cyclists may also test-ride an electric Pedago bicycle.
Parking for those showing their EV will likely be on the west side of the south parking lot, just look for the black Tesla Model S. You can enter the south parking lot at the train station from the west side via Front Street (turn onto Washington Street from Main Street and make your first left after going under the train tracks). There is a map below. North is up and the NDEW parking is the green rectangle in the NW portion of the map.
Our event is brought to you by the Chatham Borough Environmental Commission and the Chatham Borough Green Team.
