National Drive Electric Week
Sep 15, 2018
|Day:||Saturday, September 15, 2018 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
It was a perfect day for our NDEW event, the weather was great, the farmers market was buzzing, and our EV owners were busy talking to the public.
In addition to the draws brought by a Model X with its wings up, we had lots of model 3's, a Zero motorcycle, and a Ryobi electric riding lawn mower.
2 dealerships came with enthusiastic sales guys happy to talk up the electric living, as they themselves drive electric. They were in and out throughout the day giving test drives to interested attendees.
I dawned a dino costume (seen in the gallery) to entertained the kids, and drew farmer market patrons to the NDEW area.
I am very happy how the event turned out, this was my first time being a city captain and will not be the last.
