"Drive Less When You Can... Drive $mart When You Do."
On Saturday July 30th, we had a great gathering with 28 D$W Members in attendance from all over the state and Illinois. For viewing and sharing we had many EV's, PHEV's and HEV's in the parked with a lot of interest in the Tesla's and Volts in particular.
Our main topic during the Meet was on the topic "Are Hybrid's Passe" and there was intense discussion on the validity of that statement and whether we have crossed the bridge to EV/PHEV'S vehicles that hybrid technology has built. Standardization of EV technology, driver-less vehicles, emphasis of climate change and the role of governmental involvement where all discussed as well.
We ended the 48th D$W Meet with a fun session with the idea that if D$W giving every member $30,000 (the average cost of a new vehicle), what vehicle would you select and why. There was an interesting range of selections but the reasons why were the most important and proved that our D$W members understand the legacy that they'll pass on to their families and future generations...sustainability.
One more D$W Meet coming up in 2016 so stay in touch for more information.
