Event Report

The EV show at West Windsor Farmers Market is now a tradition, receiving lots of support from the West Windsor Township council. Many of the council members including the Mayor Marathe already drive electric. The Mayor made a Proclamation that was presented during the event by Councilwoman Mandel. Four other Council members were present at the event as well. The outline of the event was very well planned to maximize our exposure to Farmers Market visitors who were passing by our field as they entered the market. At the same time, we have been able to maintain social distancing very effectively, while everyone was wearing face covering. We had 17 EVs, a very good number for the pandemic, and despite substantial no shows.
We were joined by Audi of Princeton that showed brand new Audi e-Tron Sportback. One of the participants, Herve Fontaine, he is a Youtuber, arrived with modified Tesla Model 3. His vehicle has nice red wrap, spoiler and adjustable air suspension. Ben Paraan showed rare electric motorcycle BMW C Evolution. Mike Hornsby from NJ Board of Public Utilities volunteered as well, showing his early Tesla Model S with record sized frunk. Tim Lee arrived with rare Mercedes Benz B-Class ED.
