Event Report

The Hudson Valley EV group put on an Electric Car Show at the Poughkeepsie Galleria. Over 20 cars including eight different models were on display. KIA provided test drives in their SOUL EV and they were busy all day long. The Dutchess County department of planning chair was there, as well as a county legislator and they were both delighted by the show and came away with a greater understanding of EVs and our infrastructure needs. Other highlights of the event included a Signature Tesla Model X and a Zero motorcycle. All in all a great afternoon!

Please register for the event, but just as importantly join our Facebook group!  Register to come to the Drive Electric Week event and we'll invite you to join the group.  It's a nice forum to discuss local EV issues with fellow enthusiasts and drivers. It's set to be a private group so that any comments will stay within the group and not be plastered over everyone's walls.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the event!  If you have any questions or suggestions for the event please click the contact button at the top of the page or contact us on facebook. I'll be posting much more information including what dealers we expect and any relevant news as we get it.
