In recognition of National Drive Electric Week (September 15-21, 2014), Drive Electric Cars New England will hold an Electric Ride and Drive event on Saturday, September 20, 2014. This event will serve to highlight the advances made in plug in electric and plug in hybrid vehicle technologies, as well as in the infrastructure that serves to support electric driving in Storrs, CT, and beyond. Representatives from DECNE and others will be available to attest to the benefits of electrics for the environment, for decreasing dependence on foreign oil, and for our wallets. The event will feature electric cars and other electric vehicles, EV experts, live entertainment, and refreshments.
