Event Report

The first Fort Myers National Drive Electric Week EVent was very successful with a proclamation generated by Commissioner Brian Hammans office read by City Captain, Edward Ellyatt. Cold water was provided by Florida Power and Light. Thank You to that company for their presence, support and sponsorship. There was present 1 Porsche Conversion, 7 Volts, 2 Toyota RAV 4EV, a neighborhood electric vehicle, 2 Ford Focus EV, 4 BMW I-3Rex, 1 BMW I-3, 1 Cadillac ELR, 5 Tesla Model S, 1 Ford Fusion Energi, 1 Ford CMax Energi, 4 Nissan Leafs, and a conversion built by the students at Seminole University and sponsored by Duke Energy. FDEP was present with 1 day passes for Florida State Parks given to the participants who brought a plug-in vehicle. The energy and enthusiasm was palpable and the crowd responded well to the answers given to their questions. There was no clear winner with many questions about each model.
