Event Report

The event went really well. While we didn't have a lot of test drives, we did get a lot of engagement from the public. People were stopping by to ask the EV owners about their cars, taking pictures, and engaging with our volunteers and staff. One of the things that we learned was that our low test drive numbers were largely due to the fact that people attended the farmers market with their families and most of the time, the EVs didn't have enough room to accommodate the whole family. With that being the only caveat, we are very happy with the turnout of the event. As I stated earlier, we had a lot of engagement from the public and we were able to spread awareness of plug-in vehicles.
