Event Report

In addition to EV industry leader Tesla with 23 vehicles S3XY models we had 6 Rivian R1T + 1 R1S, 5 Mustang Mach-E, 1 BMW 1X, and a very rare Genisis GV60 EV and Lucid Air.  
We even had a Mini Cooper SE hardtop EV.
We had 2 Zero Motorcycles, and 1 EV conversion / shop with EV scooters.

The place was totally jammed for a couple of hours.

We had a row of 10 EV's dedicated to giving rides - 3 - 4 per car per run.  The course took riders past 14 level 2 EV chargers here in Ambler, PA before heading to the superhighway for an EV launch.
