Our event was sort of spread out so it was a challenge to get a photo of everything going on. In this photo you can see the BMW dealership and the Baker Motors dealership represented there. We had several Chevy Volt car owners, Nissan Leaf car owners, Tesla Model S and Roadster car owners, one Smart car owner that came out at various times of the day. We also had the Google Electric Shuttle on display, which was perfect as Charleston is currently considering options for their Public Transportation system.
