Event Report

The Drive Electric was a small portion of an Earth Day event. The Drive Electric was a promoted with all the other stuff going on, and with Facebook, Twitter and the Midland Daily News paper information about the whole event (and there being EVs) easily 'hit' over 45K viewers. Tesla had an official 'booth' and raffled off a free day rental but did not do test drives. One person who saw the event listed on Drive Electric drove 60 miles to show off his Model Y. In total, 5 Tesla, 1 Toyota Hybrid (non-plugin)  and 1 Bolt were present for the 4 hour event. Lack of cars in our area and me not knowing about being able to 'present' the even on your website until 6 days before hampered a better showing. Hoping that next year I will get an earlier start and that EV availability will be better.
