This Saturday, I was honored to host a National Drive Electric Week event as "City Captain" here in South Florida. This marquis event took place in Ft. Lauderdale at the very cool LauderAle venue. We had 219 guests and 49 plug-in electric vehicles (having driven a total of 818,076 electric miles). Tesla Model S owners came out in full force (see image below) as many are long-time customers of EVANNEX and loyal members of the fantastic Florida Tesla Enthusiasts Club.
