Drive Electric Ohio and Celebrate Local collaborated once more with electric vehicle (EV) drivers and enthusiasts at Easton Town Center for National Drive Electric Week, hosting an EV Ride and Drive on September 12 that featured 15 different plug-in EV, while drawing over 125 visitors and riders to experience driving electric. Nissan was on hand to provide test drives for visitors in their 2015 Nissan Leaf, while Orbital City Bicycles provided test rides on all-electric bicycles and scooters. Ohio EV Solution also provided demonstration EV Chargers, to show visitors how EV charging operates and where chargers can be found in the immediate area.
Easton Town Center serves as an ideal location for this year’s event. While Easton is known for serving as the Tesla store location for Columbus, it has been an advocate for EVs, with much of its on-site fleet being dedicated electric, as well as providing EV charging in its parking garages.
