Event Report

Our event was multifaceted as there was an EV showcase inside the Mall of America Rotunda.
Here, we interacted with around 3000 people over a period of 5 hours who were shopping at the Mall.
We were using the giant video wall to display EV content and facts. The EV display inside showcased a Porsche 918 Spyder PHEV which was a highlight and great tool to initiate engagement. The rotunda also featured a Tesla Model S P90D, Polaris Empulse TT Victory all electric motorcycle and a Chevy Volt.

Outside in the Mall of America East Parking Lot we held a showcase of EVs that owners brought and discussed with the public. We had about 30 EV owners cars, we were expecting more however there was another Ride and Drive event happening in a neighboring suburb that split the pack. The actual Ride and Drive was facilitated though dealerships, we had 2 Tesla Model S vehicles, 3 Nissan Leafs and 1 Chevy Volt.

Overall, it was a great event!
