Event Report

We had our mayor come out along with about 200 other people. Some who just happened to be driving by, some who found out through our many forms of outreach (radio, facebook, email, signage, etc). 15 cars were available at different times during our 9-3pm window.

We also had 20-30 electric bikes on display and hundreds of test rides of those took place as well!

Event Description


Join us for an Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive. Dealer and some private vehicles will be available for test drives. We are also making Electric Bikes available for test rides. EV drivers will be available to answer questions about their experience with their vehicles, including pros and cons of leasing vs. ownership, "range anxiety", and what prompted them to drive an EV.
