National Drive Electric Week
Sep 21, 2019
|Day:||Saturday, September 21, 2019 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Event ReportThe Tampa Bay EV Club gathered local enthusiasts to share our passion for EVs with the general public, with the support of local businesses Brandon Ford's Garage and Clarke Automotive We enjoyed the visit of our State Representative, Adam Hattersley, who kindly came to show his support and to learn about the needs and relevance of electric vehicles. He met with EV owners and took the time to listen to the views and concerns of local EV owners.
The many energized and enthusiastic participants made this day a genuinely amazing experience. They displayed different vehicles, with a collective driving experience of more than 500,000 miles, and were able to share personal details and stories about their cars, give rides to members of the public, and help educate non-EV owners about the many benefits and features of EVs. Being EV owners, they were able to answer numerous questions about EVs from a user perspective, providing honest and unbiased assessments of the benefits and limitations of EVs, how do they work and what their experience has been with them. We had Tesla, Nissan Leaf and Chevy Bolt and Chrysler Plug-In Hybrid models in attendance.
We enjoyed the strong spirit of camaraderie in a festive environment and plan to keep on getting together again to repeat these events in the near future.
