Event Report

We held the event in front of the Whole Foods Market in Little Rock. We wanted to take advantage of the foot traffic. We had 3 dealerships participate: Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt and Volvo XC90. In addition we had 16 current EV drivers show up with their vehicles to talk to the public about their experience driving electric. There were 6 Tesla, 1 Chevrolet Volt, 1 Ford Focus, and 8 Nissan Leaf owners present.

We consider the event a success as we were able to talk to the dealerships about bidding to get their vehicles on the state contract for state government fleets.
