We couldn't have made this event happen without the help and support of our partners, The City of Atlanta, EV Club of The South, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport & The Ray, and the Sierra Club-Georgia chapter. Given the success of the event and feedback from attendees and participants, we know that more events and opportunities to engage around this topic are needed in our communities. EVHybridNoire is committed to increasing opportunities for engagement and connecting diverse communities to EV adoption and EV technology.
We invite you to be a part of history at our Drive The Future Atlanta event, the first event in the country focused on celebrating and educating diverse Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers and individuals interested in EV ownership. We will heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. EVs are fun to drive, are less expensive to own and maintain, are more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil translating into a lower carbon footprint.
