Warm mid-70s and clear sunny skies helped make a great day, as we celebrated our 6th Annual National Drive Electric Week event at the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead, NY on Sunday September 17. Approximately 175 people were on hand to see, ride in, or drive the 26 EVs & PHEVs brought to the event by proud vehicle, owners, local dealerships, and solar power vendors. We had ten different models on display, which included 3 Chevy Bolts, 4 Chevy Volts, 2 Nissan Leafs, 1 Ford C-Max Energi, 1Focus EV, 4 Kia Souls, 2 Prius Primes, 1 Fiat 500e, 7 Tesla Model S, and 1 Tesla Roadster. Nine test drives were given to potential future EV/PHEV owners of the Bolt, Volt and Prius Prime. Tesla S and Nissan Leaf owners took passengers on about 8 test rides. One
of our solar power vendors had a solar powered Level 1 electric vehicle charger on display.

Join us on September 17 at Tanger 1 to see many of the electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles currently available in the greater NY market. Talk with enthusiastic vehicle owners to learn why they love their vehicles and/or with dealer representatives to understand the various features of the vehicles.
