We were in a Farmers Market and had a steady stream of people asking questions and looking at the vehicles. We could not give test drives because of our location. However, we were able to expose new people to electric vehicles. There were also several divers outside of the market who were able to talk to each other and there was an electric pedicab giving rides. The local newspaper, the Benicia Herald, also ran a front page article about the event and about driving electric.
All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.
