In contrast with the general Summit Park Earth Day celebration the week before, this event in Northside was an EV meet-up as well as our biggest-ever ride & drive. We had over 25 EVs total and gave over 60 rides or test drives. The stars of the show were two Rivian R1T electric pickup trucks. One of them gave over 20 rides!
We had 15 different EV models, a Zero motorcycle and a couple of e-bikes. Thanks to
Thanks to Electrada for installing EV charging—12 EV chargers within walking distance. Thanks also to Northside Business Association for hosting the event! This was our first ride & drive event in Northside. The location worked great, and the community was diverse and welcoming.
