Event Report

This is the third year we have participated in the Ramsey Happy Days event and attendees at the EV display and ride & drive continues to grow. This is a 3 hour event followed by a parade of the exhibitors, include the electric vehicles. There are between 3,000 and 4,000 attendees at this event each year, so we expose electric vehicles to many people during our time there.

New this year were the addition of an electric Zero motorcycle and an E-Go electric bike.
