In Knoxville, our nonprofit (East TN Clean Fuels Coalition) always has a booth at Knoxville's EarthFest event. This year we simply added a DEED Ride-n-Drive, and worked with the event managers to grab some key space at the event to have road access. For a somewhat dreary day, it went great! We had 42 sign-ups for people who drove one of the EVs we had to drive, and several folks drove both! The Ride-n-Drive cars included two, 2019 Nissan Leafs and one 2018 smart fortwo. About ten volunteers made it possible and managed our booth, showed their EVs to attendees (Fiat 500e and two Teslas were the most viewed static EVs), and helped corral folks over to the Ride-n-Drive.
