Event Report

The Marin National Drive Electric Week event was fairly successful considering the obstacles to presenting a successful event. We had about 500 attendees and the event resulted in 82 test drives. For liability reasons we can only allow dealers to offer test drives

We spend a lot of money and a huge amount of time organizing and publicizing the event. Except for Tesla, the car dealers are not willing to participate even though they are not asked for a contribution. We provide tents, tables, and chairs for them. We told the event at a high traffic shopping center so there will be lots of exposure for them. The fact the Nissan refused to allow us to include 2017 LEAFs was a big problem for us. It was idiotic for Nissan to send us pens and hats to give out, but refused to let us show 2017 cars. I will provide a more detailed report via email.
