Event Report

The Tucson Mall is a high traffic display that is exposed to a HUGE number of visitors. Situated in the cool of the indoor shopping arena, there is ample time for patrons to view the unique vehicles. The Zero Motorcycle, Tesla and the Pedego E-bike are all big draws. The video display, located nearby with a bench for shoppers to sit and rest, runs an hour long sequence of videos that include a wide variety of EV information such as commercials, interviews, YouTube videos, car reviews and calls to join TEVA Tucson. The information table is set up with live plants and outlet boxes to illustrate how easy it is to plug in your next car!

September is still a time of intense heat in the Sonoran Desert and the Mall is a huge draw for locals and students returning to the U of A with their families. The mall has 10 million unique visitors annually. Last year, in September the mall saw just under 600,000 visitors. In 8 days of display for NDEW 2018, an estimated about 60,000 visitors saw the display. Electric Vehicles Pictured: Pedego Interceptor E bike and the Chevy Volt.
