WESTPORT, Conn. – From Teslas to Smart Cars, more than 30 electric vehicles turned heads in Westport Saturday during the first annual Westport Electric Car Club Road Rally.

Following an approximately 40-mile rally through Westport and Fairfield, a total of 33 cars sat on display outside Westport’s Blu Parrot restaurant for the viewing pleasure of local car enthusiasts— some of whom were surprised by what they saw.

“When I think of electric cars, I think of tiny, odd-shaped cars, not this,” Stratford resident Dan Cathier said as he gazed upon the sleek and sporty Fisker Karma. “This is a very nice looking car. If I saw this on the street, I would never think it was an electric car.”

Cathier and his 12-year-old son Drew were also impressed by the numerous Teslas on display, including a Tesla Roadster and several Tesla Model Ss.
