Event Report

I was able to attend the Thursday drive electric vehicle experience. We had a Tesla Model 3 and X, a Chevrolet Bolt, two Nissan Leafs, a Prius Prime, and a battery electric boat (1983 Duffy Electric Launch) turn out for the event. Several people were given rides in Model X, and I gave about six boat rides for several groups, about 12 people total. We may have been the only event in the nation that offered boat rides as part of the EV experience!
