We hosted our event at the 2019 Washington Auto Show, which was featuring an EZEV Drive track, where our attendees got a chance to participate and ride along, without the public interfering, and getting the inside info fro Excellon who were sponsoring the EZEV Ride along event at the show. We got to hear from and ask questions of officials and technical staff members from Electrify America, Audi, Kia, and Subaru.
Jaguar was also offering rides in its ipace at the show which our attendees took advantage of.
Kia hosted lunch for our attendees which was an excellent way to get everyone together.
