National Drive Electric Week
Sep 12, 2015
|Day:||Saturday, September 12, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
After months of planning, the one thing we couldn't control -the weather- cost us significantly in attendance. Despite that, over 30 vendors and 32 vehicles were in attendance. In total we had 32 EVs and the total gas free miles for assembled drivers was 402,316 collectively!
Turn out was a lot less than last year - I think the proximity and timing of St Petersburg event hurt attendance(in addition to the rain).
Estimate total turnout around 1200- 1500. The Mayor and a council member kicked off the event. We had the new Director for the University of South Florida's Patel College of Sustainability speak. We had a kid's area with hands on art projects (Tesla donated some activity pages), and face painting.
Vehicles as follows:
We had one BMW i8 ;-)
3 BMW i3s. 2 in the ride and drive (R&D)
A Porsche Panamera
One Prius plug in
One Cadillac ELR. r&D
Six Leafs - 2 in R&D
9 Volts -1 in ride and drive
11 Teslas. (owners actually did R&Ds )
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
