Event Report

We had a great time at our 2nd Annual NDEW event in Cincinnati! Many test rides and drives were provided.
BMW North of Cincinnati and Jake Sweeney Chevrolet were busy giving almost continuous test drives in the BMW i3, i8, 530e and Chevy Bolt.
Many local EV owners also brought their cars and motorcycles to proudly show off, with several offering ride and drives in the Leaf, Volt, Model S and Model X. We also had a Cadillac ER, Toyota Plug-in Prius, and a Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
The Mitsubishi owner showed how the car could be used to power an electric grill to cook hamburgers, and passed out free hotdogs to anyone who would sign the Sierra Club Petition! We also had a few other very special EV attractions:
The local Workhorse Group made the Cincinnati debut of the first electric pickup truck ever built from the ground up, the hybrid W-15. Two local news stations were on hand to do stories about the truck.
The Garage OTR brought multiple electric Segways, bicycles and scooters for people to try out, providing a lot of fun and entertainment!
