Recharge Massachusetts held a very successful event at the Hyannis Transportation Center (HTC) on June 3! With test drive cars from Tesla, Ford, VW, Chevy, Toyota, and Lucid, plus showcase cars from both dealers and private owners, the attendees had a wide range of options for learning about EVs. The parking lot also served as a demonstration ground for the Steamship Authority’s brand-new electric bus and e-bikes from Sea Coast Cyclery.
48 attendees registered for test drives, with most of them driving two or three different models. Exhibitors under the tent, which was kept lively by a DJ courtesy of Cape Air, included the Cape Cod Commission, Cape Light Compact, Faith Communities Environmental Network, and the Green Energy Consumer Alliance. Energy companies, including Eversource, E2 Solar, and Energy New England, also participated to let consumers know how to qualify for rebates on home energy and EVs.
Despite a blustery, drizzly coastal New England day, a couple hundred attendees turned out for the event. We would like to thank everyone on the steering committee and at the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority for coming together to make this event work!
