Clarksville Commons is a mixed-use development with strong commitment to sustainability and community - the perfect location to host an EV celebration.
We put one of each kind of car on the plaza, and all other in one aisle of the parking lot for 'tailgating.' Three local dealerships brought cars, plus seven community members agreed to also park on the plaza and act as representatives for the make/model they own. The dealerships displayed Spark, Volt, Bolt, Leaf, and Fusion Plug-in. Community members brought Prius Plug-in, Tesla S, Tesla X, Mercedes-Benz B-Class, BMW i3 REx, Fiskar Karma, Think City, and a snazzy red sports car that someone made from a kit.
We started organizing the event with just three weeks notice and were extremely pleased and delighted with our turn out!

The Clarksville Commons plaza provided a great setting for showing and admiring electric cars.
