Event Report

Due to the unique logistics in Hong Kong, and difficultly of getting an outdoor location, we ran this as a distributed, but online socially shared, event. We did have a final celebratory evening event on Sunday 20th, but that was really just for participants to get together and celebrate (plus speeches, lucky draw prizes, etc).

We arranged a points system, where participants scored points for completing tasks in different categories. The categories were (a) Joining and Publicising, (b) Test Rides, (c) arranging Test Drives, (d) Public Charging, (e) Destination Charging, (f) attending the final gathering, and (g) facilitating an EV sale. We also had a general bonus category for 'above and beyond'.

The results were quite simply staggering. By the end of the week, we had approximately 80 active participants. More than 500 test rides were given, 10 test drives arranged, 300 public charges, and 3 EVs were sold, during the week. Almost all of these events were socially shared.

Event Description


All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

For the first National Drive Electric Week event in Hong Kong, we're showcasing public and destination charging.

This week long event will include special offers and incentives to get EV drivers in Hong Kong out and using public and destination charging locations. A treasure hunt game will be run, where points will be awarded to each team for the most public/destination chargers visited and used in the week, tasks completed, sales, sign-ups, as well as introductions and test drives given to members of the public. On Sunday 20th September, a finishing line gathering will take place at Sun Hung Kai centre, for participating teams.

Participation is open, but each team must have one plug-in Electric Vehicle in Hong Kong.
