Event Report

Most of the visitors to the event were interested in buying an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. Some were interested in buying a used vehicle. All really wanted to see the Rivian truck, which was registered but did not show up. In fact, 11 of the registered vehicles did not attend and did not communicate with organizers. Fortunately, we had a Model Y towing a pop-up camping trailer that was a great interest to those attending, and the Ford Mach-E also proved to be very popular. A Chevy Bolt and a Tesla Model 3 provided some thrilling ride-along opportunities. Staff at the Express Credit Union and Seattle City Light tables answered lots of questions, and the Seattle Electric Vehicle Association booth provided lots of charging advice. And it didn't rain, like last year! The weather was cool and breezy but party sunny.

Visitors got lots of answers about financing and charging electric vehicles at tables staffed by Express Credit Union and Seattle City Light, as well as volunteers with the Seattle Electric Vehicle Association.
