Event Report

Princeton NDEW was part of eCommuter Fest organized primarily by Sustainable Princeton. It is focused on sustainable transportation options for residents of Princeton. The show had 12 individually owned EVs ranging from old to new, from affordable Chevy Bolt to premium Audi e-tron or Rivian R1T. On display was also electric bus managed by Princeton University. It was the biggest EV at the event. We had a record high number of 16 dealer vehicles and 13 of them were available for Ride & Drive program. NJEVA was managing the registration, waivers and coordination of it. Electric bikes were also present and available for test riding. The main sponsor of eCommuter Fest is NRG Energy and the event was held in Princeton Shopping Mall. Mayor of Princeton Mark Freda visited the event.
