This was our second year putting on this event and we had much more of a variety of plug-in electric vehicles this time. Everything from a KIA Soul EV and Fiat electric to Smart EV's and Model X. Local dealerships provided static displays of the 2017 Chevy Volt, BMW 330e plug-in sedan and Model X. Leaf test drives were provided by Cornelius Willingham, Nissan's Electric Vehicle Fleet Business Development Manager. He brought a module of the Leaf's battery for show and was a wealth of knowledge to speak to. ReNu Energy Solutions who are our sustainable energy partners that install solar panels to residences was there providing free coffee.
Everyone had a great time showing off their cars to the public and each other.
