Our Germantown event was very successful. It was a special Memphis area day, sunny and in the low 80s. Whole Foods Market was gracious to host our event. They povided us with the entire side row for parking our electric vehicles, and the use of their 2 Level 2 chargers. EV attendance exceeded my expectations, every mass produced EV and plug in, I am aware of, was represented at our event. They included 2 Mitsubishi Mievs, 3 Chevy Volts, 1 Toyota plug in Prius, 1 Ford plug in Fusion, 2 Nissan Leafs, 1 BMW i3, 1 BMW i8, 1 Tesla Model S, and 2 hand made electric bicycles.
Nissan marketing, and 1 dealerships attended, Roadshow BMW. BMW provided electric vehicles for people to check out.
Mayor Mike Palazzolo attended, spoke to his desire for Germantown to explore city use of EVs and solar. He was impressed with the technology EVs.
The Whole Foods Customers, and their employees, were drawn to the cars. We orientated the vehicles and adorned balloons to the cars to promote attention. Many
