    The Electric Car Guest Drive events were very well attended by both EC owners and people who were curious about owning an EC. More than 100 people mingled in the park at each of last weekend’s events held in the San Diego area. EC owners provided lots of information and offered test drives in their vehicles throughout the afternoon. The vehicles included the Tesla Model S, Fiat 500e, Toyota RAV4 EV, Nissan Leaf, Honda Fit EV, VW Beetle EV conversion, Chevy Volt and Ford Focus Electric.
