Event Report

Despite being one of the coldest and rainiest days of the season we had an impressive turnout. EV owners are passionate and resilient and will do whatever it takes to share their knowledge and experiences driving electric. Many great conversations took place educating non-EV owners about charging, driving fun, cost savings etc.

We had great representation from Tesla owners with Model S, X and 3. We also had a unique and rare opportunity to have a prototype Jaguar I-PACE at our event. Not only was it on display, but was available for test drives. 18 of the 40+ test drives given were in the I-PACE. Many other makes and models of BEV and PHEV vehicles were present providing a well-rounded event. We also had a few visitors show up with their EV’s from seeing our signs and flags.

Thanks to Immaculate Paint Protection LLC., one lucky Tesla owner won the $500 raffle towards a paint protection package.

This was the first year the Lehigh Valley participated in a NDEW event, but this definitely won’t be our last! Interest in EV’s is strong and we look forward to having future events.
