The event was staged in the parking lot of the Springs Preserve museum under a photovoltaic solar power canopy that tracked the sun and provided electricity for nearby ChargePoint EVSE charging stations.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, all attendees wore facial masks and were screened by an Emergency Medical Technician and a questionnaire about their health the morning of the event. Social distancing was also practiced in the parking lot area regarding location of vehicles and exhibit tables.

About 48 EV Owners brought their electric vehicles that ranged from multiple Tesla Models S,3, X, Y and an original Roadster, as well as two new Ford Mustang Mach-E, a Honda Clarity, three Chevrolet Spark EVs, Chevrolet Bolts, a BMW i3, two Nissan LEAFs and a vintage Toyota RAV-4 EV with inductive charging port.

Local automotive dealerships included Autonation Volkswagen displaying a new ID4, as well as Audi Las Vegas with two new e-tron models.

Exhibitors included NV Energy, Las Vegas Electric Vehicle Association, Las Vegas Tesla Owners Group, Robco Electric and BSA Electronics.

About 125 people attended the in-person electric vehicle rally event that was staged in alignment with COVID-19 guidelines from the CDC and Nevada state governor’s office.
