      Had so much fun and folks seem to have enjoyed the first day's coverage that I went ahead and wrote a blogpost about today's NDEW2016 in Los Angeles.

      Pictures in the same Flickr album (go about 22 or 23 photos in, and the LA ones start there)


      All Tesla Models were represented... Looking forward to when the Model 3 will be a part of the display:

      to the LAPD Model S with its lights flashing

      Chris Paine, Dean Devlin, and Chelsea Sexton talked about EV Storytelling discussing both Who Killed the Electric Car and Revenge of the Electric Car. I streamed this on Periscope and uploaded to Youtube as well

      Here is the direct link to the YT:





      So, one of the cool exhibitors were the folks from Greencommuter.org.

      They use Model X for vanpools in the LA area.

      It was a good event and we're excited for more of these in the area.

        Ken attended ours in Toronto on the weekend. I was busy with family commitments so I wasn't able to participate.

        We will have a short segment on our next show due September 24th.

        Here are a few shots taken by Ken.

        Ok... I am really EV obsessed and decided to attend a few more of these, I just got around to publishing it because I was too involved with sharing our Long Way Round trip and blogpost during the same time as National Drive Electric Week 2016.

        So, without further delay, here are the last two NDEW 2016 events I went to: Santa Monica and Long Beach.

        Santa Monica

        [​IMG]Untitled by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr


        [​IMG]IMG_20160916_144603 by Dennis Pascual, on FlickrWe Waive the Fee, You Drive for Free!


        [​IMG]IMG_20160916_144612 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr


        One of the key interesting things about the SM event was Waivecar and its free for 2 hours car share in Santa Monica.

        They use Spark EVs. So, if you're visiting the Southern California area and want to try out the Spark EV (available only in Compliance States) perhaps check them out.

        Long Beach

        We had good representation of Teslas in Long Beach.

        as well as other EVs.

        Including a Porsche conversion that can go 150 miles.

        Hope that you enjoyed the Santa Monica and Long Beach event coverage as well.

        Glad you're enjoying the posts. I hope to help folks make the transition from ICE to EV and for those that have just moved to EV to be more comfortable with their move.
