Take part in our 5th annual National Drive Electric Week event in the Electric City!

This is an opportunity for EV enthusiasts and auto dealers to showcase pure electric vehicles to the public in a relaxed open venue free of manufacturer, technical, or political bias. The goal is to get people excited about modern EVs and while giving them the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, as well as making EV test drives available from local dealers. 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. With a range of EVs on the road, there is an electric car for every lifestyle. 

Local dealers will be bringing new EVs for test drives. We welcome participation from local car dealerships, EV owners, renewable energy companies, utility companies, and anyone else that is part of the electric vehicle eco-system. Space for EVs is limited to 70 vehicles this year and we are working on an overflow lot to accommodate any additional registrants, so please feel free to register regardless of the number of entries.

                                                                                 We'll have a new all-electric Proterra E2 bus for demo rides!

Fun for the whole family
