National Drive Electric Week
Sep 15, 2019
|Day:||Sunday, September 15, 2019 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Our event was intended to be a neighborhood event where people could talk to owners of electric cars and take a test drive. All of the people who came had not driven an electric car before. many of them drove several different models. We had Tesla Model 3 Short Range, Model 3 Long Range (2), 2015 Tesla Model S 70D, 2017 Tesla Model X P100D, BMW i3, Jaguar I-Pace and 2 Nissan Leafs.
There were lots of questions about wintertime driving, charging on the road, charging at home and getting service.
We feel there were some things we learned and that this kind of small neighborhood event is a good way to have people learn a bit about electric cars. If I were to do it again, I would put the cost of the cars in the windows... and maybe the lease monthly cost. Many people were surprised to know that a Tesla Model 3 or a Nissan Leaf Plus or Huyndai can cost around $35,000.
I will try to do another neighborhood event.
