The 2017 Charlotte National Drive Electric Week event on September 15th went off without a hitch. A special thanks to the City of Charlotte for partnering with the Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition as co-hosts for this year's event. We had a great media presence with both Spectrum TV and the local Channel 9 news coming out to cover our event.
Many thanks to the EV owners who showed up; we had a total of 14 vehicles present. While the audience was smaller than in recent years, there were still plenty of people interested in stopping by for a chat with an EV owner or getting in a vehicle to check out the features. Among the selection were several Nissan Leafs', a Fiat 500e, a Chevy Volt, a Tesla Model S and a Model X, a Ford C-MAX Energi, BMW brought two vehicles, a Mini Cooper and BMW 330e; Club Car brought a commercial, fit-to-task series work utility vehicle; Duke Energy's VIA truck; and an electric baggage tow vehicle from Piedmont Airlines, now owned by American Airlines.
