Teslas and other EVs Share the Stage at Fairport Music Festival

August 29, 2019 12:28 PM | Joe Moore (Administrator)

On Saturday August 24, the Rochester suburb of Fairport was rocking as it hosted the annual Fairport Music Festival. While there was electricity in the air from the music, there was also electricity on the streets as Electric Car Insider and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) teamed up to show off some of the latest electric vehicles! Four TOCNYS members brought their Teslas to be part of the exhibit.



Altogether, there were 6 vehicles on display: 3 Tesla Model 3s, a Tesla Model S, a Mitsubishi Outlander (Plug-in Hybrid), and a Honda Clarity (Plug-in Hybrid).

According to our admittedly biased observation (we are the Tesla Owners Club NYS, after all), the Teslas got the lion's share of the attention from passersby. Among the Teslas, interestingly enough, the Model 3s seemed to attract more interest than the Model S. This seems to indicate that more and more people are seriously considering investing in an EV, as they focus on the more affordable over the faster, more flashy model.



More than a few people expressed that though they may have seen Teslas on the road before, this was their first chance to see one up close and to ask questions of an owner. The most popular questions people had were not surprises: How much (to buy)? How far (is the range)? and How fast (does it take to charge)? The answers to these questions are becoming attractive to the listener as time goes on, which bodes very well for the future of Tesla, EVs, and the planet!


Thanks to TOCNYS members Patrick H, Rick C, Michael S, and Philip L. for volunteering to share their knowledge and love of EVs and Tesla!
