|Time:||11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.|
R.E. OIds Transportation Museum (parking lot, outdoor event)
240 Museum Dr.
Lansing, MI 48933
GLACC, with the support of staff at the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum, held a "Pop-up EV Auto Show Exhibit". This event drew seven (7) plug-in electric vehicles and one (1) solar-power electric assist bicycle (an Organic Transit ELF: http://organictransit.com/). Three (3) Chevy Volts, one (1) Nissan Leaf, one (1) Tesla Model S, one (1) Corbin Sparrow, and one (1) BMW i3. Each of these vehicles was brought, displayed, and "ride-and-drive'ed" by its owner.
The $1000 estimated budget constitutes staff planning time and staff time to conduct the event. The 4 hours estimated for volunteer time constitutes R.E. Olds Transportation Museum staff time provided to conduct the event.
The 30 individuals listed as participants do not include any individuals who may have read the email postings and social media posts promoting the event, which is more difficult to accurately assess.
This event was a success and has led to an interest in collaborating on future NDEW events at the Museum.
