Event Report

The Sierra Club/Wakarusa Group and the Sustainability Action Network organized a two-part event for Earth Day. We had nine EVs join the traditional Earth Day parade, followed by an EV showcase adjacent to the park where Earth Day was being celebrated. In theory we represented 11 EVs, because one of the Tesla 3 drivers has a Nissan LEAF that was in our NDEW show last September, and the Tesla X driver has a Mercedes B-Class B250e that also was in our NDEW show last September. But they could drive only one car at a time! And another of the Tesla 3 drivers had attended our NDEW show last September, and based on his experience at that show, he bought his Tesla one month later.
