Event Report

We had a great EVent with sixty plug-in vehicles including thirty Tesla and two Zero motorcycles. PlugInAmerica Katherine was at our information booth greeting EVeryone and telling them about the many different vehicles we had at the show. The only vehicle still missing was a Tesla Model 3 but we had two Chevy BOLTS to cover for them.

Our Phoenix EAA Facebook page will have a flood of pictures and even a drone movie when everything gets uploaded. Jim Stack, Phoenix EAA President and one of the city captains was busy talking with the crowd of over 2,000 so other attendees got photos on his behalf.

We had our NDEW at the Pavilions at Talking Stick in Scottsdale which is the longest running outdoor car show in the country and it was great to see the large influx of EVs, especially as the number grows each year!
