On a beautiful sunny day overlooking the Channel Islands Harbor in Southern California, a crowd of approximately 400 people viewed all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles being exhibited by private owners and dealers. Among current models, 10 separate vehicles were represented with 27 total vehicles. Included in the display were two vehicles converted to all battery electric--a 1957 Mercedes 190SL and a Volkswagen Beetle. Also were a 1958 Sport Rider, one of the first street-legal all-electric vehicles available in the United States, an Elf, and a GEM 825.
A county Air Pollution Control District representative was present distributing discount vouchers to residents wanting to purchase or lease new EVs or PHEVs at steep discounts under a local government subsidy program. As a result of this NDEW exhibition and the available government discount program, at least two people purchased a new Mercedes B250 all-electric sedan and others showed a sincere interest to buy an EV/PHEV.
