Event Report

We had several hundred people who came and talked with the car owners and dealerships. Many took rides and some did test drives on the small closed road course that we had setup. If we include those who visited our Booth with the Tesla S P85D in it and those who watched our electric cars drive down the center of town in the parade that opened the day's events, than we had about 8-10k people who view our cars and participated in our event.

We combined our event with Poolesville Day, a great family fun community event that draws people from the surrounding Maryland/DC/Virginia area. We had 15 models and 42 cars registered, plus a few more showed up that were not registered, making this one of the largest shows on the east coast. Our EVs were made up of production cars, conversions and even a Zero motorcycle. We had both owners and dealerships, including Tesla Motors, showing their latest Model S P85D in our booth which was in the center of Poolesville Day.

The National Drive Electric Week Show will begin at 11:30 am. We are expanding the area to include more of Rt 107 which will allow for more cars, more visibility and even some vendor tents.  There will be free give-a-ways and free T-Shirts for participating EV owners. Please let us know if you would like to offer rides/drives to show guests. We have made arrangements with local residents who own EVs to allow charging at their homes if needed.
