100 people turn out for reception announcing Green Vehicles & Leyden Energy EV battery partnership

OK, we don't have an exact count, but our guesstimate is 100 people came out in the cold and rain on Saturday, November 20 to participate in a reception at Green Vehicles' manufacturing facility in Salinas, CA. The reception was held to announce the partnership between Green Vehicles and our battery supplier, Leyden Energy of Fremont.  We had a good showing from EV enthusiasts, Salinas residents, local politicians, and media. The size of the turn-out exceeded our expectations for a Saturday afternoon corporate event. What a testament to the excitement and expectations surrounding affordable, clean transportation options for freeway commuters. Many thanks to everyone who attended!

Here are links to a media coverage that resulted from the event:

Ever wonder what 80,000 square feet of factory floor looks like?
