National Drive Electric Week
Sep 09, 2017
|Day:||Saturday, September 9, 2017 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Twenty four EVs and their wonderful owners plus countless others celebrated NDEW2017 in a downtown Vancouver park on Sept 9. Two vehicles greeted hundreds of farmers market patrons, while most gathered on a bricked, pedestrian plaza to answer people's questions, share their love for EVs, and speak of the rEVolution that's at hand.
Hundreds of patrons from the Peace and Justice Fair were lured in to speak to these passionate volunteers who gave up their day to spread the word on electric cars. All electrics on hand were: 6 Nissan Leafs, 2 Chevy Bolts, 1 Fiat 500e, 2 Mitsubishi i-MiEVs, 1 BMW i3, 1 Ford Focus electric, and of course the dedicated Tesla crowd with 6 Model S and 4 Model X (one was even pulling a trailer!). Oh, and electric bikes too! Plug-in hybrids included 3 Chevy Volt and 1 Prius Prime.
Thanks to Clark PUD (our amazing utility) for sponsoring the event locally and to Green Ridge Solar for supplying authentic bagels and cream cheese to all the volunteers!
