National Drive Electric Week Event - Scarborough
|Day:||Thursday, September 17, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
Centennial College Ashtonbee Campus
75 Ashtonbee Road
Scarborough, ON M1L 4N4
This was a first attempt for this event and venue. But I would still consider it a success given the limited resources and time that were available to plan and implement it. It was essentially an after work weekday evening event. There was no advertising budget. But with very little promotion and limited social media presence, we were able to gather over a dozen attendees and 5 electric vehicles (including 2 Tesla Model S, 1 Smart fortwo, Nissan Leaf and Ford Fusion Plug-in aftermarket conversion). Those who went for test drives/rides were quite impressed with the vehicles. Perhaps next year with more time and planning there will be a much bigger turnout.
Note, we are beginning to lose the daylight quite early this time of year. But I managed to capture a candid event photo of some interesting discussions amongst attendees gathered around the electric vehicles and charging stations onsite at the Centennial College Ashtonbee campus. Please see photo upload.
