Event Report

For a small event, we had a nice variety of EV models; a Tesla Model X Plaid, a 2023 Tesla Model Y, a Kia Niro and Kia EV6, a Chevy Bolt, a Nissan Leaf, and a Ford Escape PHEV. There was deep engagement with several attendees, many of whom were actively in the market for a new car, and one person test drove the Ford Escape PHEV. These types of events are important to hold in smaller, more rural areas, where there tends to be more EV skepticism and lack of knowledge.
