Thanks for all the effort in Portland Oregon today Gary. 6 Fits in one place was great!

Thanks to all that showed up and talked about the Fit EV (and EV's in general). The focus of the event was to share information and enthusiasm with members of the public, and I saw that exchange happening constantly at all the cars. I know I personally talked to many people that were only slightly familiar with EV's (if at all), and held some of the usual misconceptions.

It was really all of the EV owners (Fit and otherwise) that made the event so successful.

6 Fit EV's was definitely fun to see. I think that was the highest representation of any model (though the Leaf may have also had 6 - but not all at the same time?) Tesla was 5 (but also not there all at once).

Photos:
Who has one good one they would be willing to share on the NDEW website? Looking for one many EV's, participants and reflecting the general flavor of the event. I took some early on, but forgot about my camera as it got busier. They will give photo credit.

Looking forward to seeing the photo(s) of the six Fit EV's together! (and I agree about going for double next year)

Thanks Again!

Great pics, thanks for sharing them. Impressive gaggle of FEV's! :)

The engine compartment picture is most impressive. One winter's worth of salt here in the northeast takes the shine right off of all that aluminum the controller box is made of.
