  5. Nice. The event for 2016 is on May 1. I did not know that Ford and Chevrolet has EV cars. I don't see charging stations here, maybe that's the reason they are not available. Relating to cars, I work for Foster Insurance and they are awesome! Learn more about your options when it comes to car insurance in Leominster MA and request a free quote.
