Event Report

Our event went well. Better than I expected and as well as I had hoped. Over the week we reach more than 200 people at a personal conversation level, and with only 15 EVs and less than a $1000, we staged 17 mini-events and one main ride & drive event, providing something like 100 personal in-car experiences of electric vehicles. The kind of experiences that are known to be turning points for motorists considering switching to electric drive.
