Asheville, NC 28806
We were privileged to have two Jaguar Ipaces and the new Audio E-Tron present. The were many test rides given in the Jaguar Ipaces. However, by far, Tesla Owners made up more than half of the show and many came just to ride in the Model 3. In addition, two local solar companies were present and one company had a large enough array and battery system to charge an EV. There was a local ice cream company (The HOP) and a local electric bicycle tor company present as well. The freezers for the ice-cream and the speaker system were powered by a Nissan Leaf with a power inverter.
Sponsored by the Blue Ridge EV Club, Western Carolina Tesla Owners and the Asheville Outlets, come and experience the exciting world of Electric Vehicles on Asheville's First Drive Electric Earth Day, April 28th noon to 4pm.
Owners and dealers will be present with some of the latest long range EVs, 4 wheel drive EVs, and Plug In Hybrids, answering everything you've ever wanted to know about electric cars.
