Event Report

We had such a fun time at our metro Atlanta National Drive Electric Week celebration at Avalon in Alpharetta.

Some 40 EVs were displayed and Nissan pulled out all the stops with an interactive 2018 Nissan LEAF display. What an awesome car!! United BMW and Chevrolet also offered ride & drives to attendees. Chevy, with only one Bolt ( they were disappointed they didn't bring more!) gave at least 40 drives and BMW, around 25.
