Event Report

Over 35 electric vehicle owners showed off their vehicles including 5 Zero motorcycles.  The presence of a Rivian R1S was a highlight as not many people have seen those "in the wild". 

Boondox Motorsports of Caledonia brought out two brand new Zero DSR/X and SR/S motorcycles.  
A dealer presence by Kia of Grand Rapids North made possible some ride and drives of their EV6 models.  
Consumers Energy had their booth highlighting EV information as well as home charging solutions and rebates.  

A special shout out to Meijer for allowing us to host the event a their location near the Tesla Superchargers and ChargePoint/Shell Recharge chargers.

Thanks to all who made it out as exhibitors and visitors!
