Event Report

Our NDEW event was held at Middletown High School as a part of the Cat Tales non-profit organization's Fast and Furriest Car Show. We had our own section with five plug-ins on display; a Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, Ford C-Max Energi, BMW i3 Rex, and a Chevy Volt. Over 150 stopped by the exhibit to talk EVs with our team.
