ELEX CARS/RECAP: "In Exeter this past Sunday at the Electric Vehicle Test-Drive Event, visiting Governor of Washington State, Jay Inslee, who has a strong stance on clean energy, takes a ride around the bandstand in one of the very first electric cars: Bart Bailey’s 1911 Phaeton. Over 25 local electric vehicle (EV) owners showcased their cars at the bandstand and nearby, including seven Teslas (models S,3,X). Folks from the greater Exeter area asked them questions about EV ownership and charging.
A Telsa owner from East Kingston commented that she and her husband travel to dine, shop, and be entertained in towns that have downtown EV Charging Stations. She would like to come to Exeter often, but chooses Amesbury because of its support for EV drivers.
Local dealerships provided test drives for many attendees in a Bolt provided by Amesbury Chevrolet, an i-3 provided by BMW of Stratham and a Clarity from Stratham Honda Barn. If you missed the event, you can go visit the dealerships directly for your own test drive. This event was co-hosted by Exeter’s Energy Committee and Exeter NH Transition Town in an effort to reduce tailpipe emissions in Exeter."
