Drive Electric Day – San Antonio featured over a dozen electric cars in a variety of makes and models, including a BMW i3, Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Fiat 500e, Kia Soul EV, Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model S and a Tesla Model X, alongside their proud owners. Each owner shared their unique experience with researching, purchasing and maintaining their EV. In addition to the electric car displays and test drives, Drive Electric Day featured booths from the Alamo Area Clean Cities Coalition, the Alamo Area Council of Government’s Commute Solutions program, the City of San Antonio’s Office of Sustainability and CPS Energy.
Chris Langston attended the event and rode in a Tesla Model S and BMW i3 Rex. Chris explained, “The best part of the event was being able to interact with local EV owners. Being able to talk, question, and ride along with an EV owner far exceeds anything you can get from talking with a car salesman. You know you are getting straightforward answers and not a sales pitch.”
