Event Report

We had a great turnout of cars, dealers and people interested in EVs. I've been at this event 5 years now and this was by far the best year. The crowd was showing interest and asking more and better questions than past years. The most common questions as expected were how much range and cost. Many asked questions to their specific use, something we did not see as much in past years. Questions like can I flat tow it, how do I charge it, is there an electric truck. I even had someone want to see how many sheep they could fit in my Bolt EV.
We also had more dealers present than past years. BMW had 4 models, Ford 2, Chevy 3, Toyota 1, Volvo 1.
I had 2 people say to me their next car will be electric. I think we are making a difference here in NH. The group of volunteers are continuing the effort. We're trying to get more EV chargers in the state this year.
