Hi, You-All,
I drove the 60 miles West to St Petersburg this morning. The ocasion
was the Grand Opening of the First all electric vehicle dealership in
Florida's west coast area. The Father and Son team who opened it have never
owned an EV before. They opened last week and the Grand Opening started
Thursday and continues to Sunday, today; Friday was the "Ribbon Cutting" and
the Mayor of St.Petersburg and two city council members and the President of
the Chamber of Commerce, the two owners, and the CEO of "Weego" were all
present, The Mayor gave a five minute speech and announced that
St.Petersburg had been designated Florida's First "GREEN CITY" then at
1:30PM they grabbed seven pair of scissors and all tried to cut the same
ribbon. (That was Hilarious, as the first one cut thru the ribbon, it went
loose and the other scissors without any tension on it mangled the ribbon !!
) They had four EV on display but only NEV as the highway capable EV have
not been delivered yet. WEEGO.com shows pictures. They are built in
California. The interior space is very generous, the CEO claimed it was
because, the model for the interior space was himself at 6'2" and 350lb
