The EV Showcase that kicked off Electric Vehicle Days in Annapolis on Saturday, Sept. 15, was very successful with some 20 cars participating and a steady stream of interested people asking questions and talking to owners and dealers. EVs represented included an iThink City, two Mitsubishi iMiEvs, several Plug-In Priuses (two with solar power!), several Leafs and Volts, a Fisker Karma, an electric ride-on lawn mower, an electric motorcycle, electric bicycles, and even an electric skateboard. The event will be repeated, with a slightly different line-up of cars, on National Plug-In Day, Sept. 23, noon to 5 p.m.
