Event Report

Our event drew around 500 attendees. Cars available for test drive were 2 I-MiEVs and a Nissan Leaf. Cars on display included 2 Nissan Leafs, 2 Tesla Model S, 2 Tesla Model X, 1 Porsche Cayenne, 1 Volvo XC-90, 1 Ford Fusion Electric, 1 Porsche Cayenne, 1 I-Miev. This I-MiEV on display from NSCC is two-way enabled and actually powered the radio station for the entire second half of the event. Also, the Porsche 919 was on display, which won the Le Mans Championship multiple times. This car is a test-bed for their hybrid and electric race cars, and will be retired to convert to all-electric racing. In addition to the vehicles, Dalhousie displayed battery technology research and there were events for children and a free BBQ provided by Nova Scotia Power. Finally, there were electric bicycle and electric segway test drives as well.
