National Drive Electric Week is an opportunity for EV enthusiasts, DIY’ers, and auto dealers to showcase pure electric vehicles as well as plug-in hybrids to the public in a relaxed open venue free of manufacturer, technical, or political bias. The goal is to get people excited about modern EV’s and Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles while giving them the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, as well as allowing test drives in some cases. It’s also a chance to help inform the public about electric vehicles, like any new technology there are still some prevalent misconceptions and lots of questions that the public has.We will have test drives, static displays, hands on activities, and more. We welcome participation from local car dealerships, car owners, renewable energy companies, utility companies, and anyone else that is part of the electric vehicle eco-system.
