Event Report

We had a nice spot in the parking lot of a Hannaford Supermarket which has EVgo Level 2 and DC Fast Charging available. A mix of vehicles, including Nissan LEAFs, Ford CMax Energi, Smart ED, Chevrolet Volts, VW e-Golfs, and a Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid. Signage along the busy Marshall Avenue alerted people to the event and many test drives and rides were given with smiles around. Many of the public joining for the ride and drive were actively shopping for an EV, including a few VW diesel owners.
