Event Report

Four Nissan LEAF owners displayed their vehicles, answered questions, and gave test rides and drives at the Salmon River Park in Gustavus, Alaska on September 16. About 25 locals checked out cars powered by the same rain that failed to damp the enthusiasm of owners and lookers alike. Many others noted the event as they drove past on the community's main road. This northern-most Drive Electric Week event celebrated growing from one electric vehicle in 2016 to seven in 2017 for only 489 permanent residents, demonstrating that local hydropower, a very limited road system, and a maritime climate make EVs a natural fit for our community.
