Join Drive Electric RVA as we celebrate National Drive Electric Week at the South of the James Farmers Market on Saturday, Sept. 9 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. We will have a variety of electric vehicles on display, including unique EVs like the ELF velomobile from Organic Transit and the OneWheel electric skateboard made by Epic RVA.
In addition to the vehicles on display, we will have several EVs available for test drives at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church near the market. Shuttle service will be provided, along with Krispy Kreme donuts in case you are hungry :) Models scheduled for test drives include the Chevy Volt, BMW i3, and several models of electric assist bikes provided by Shift Bicycles.
Please sign up for a test drive by clicking on the blue "Register" button above. Let us know in the comments section that you want to do a test drive and note any particular EVs you would be interested in seeing.
(Note: Due to space constraints, we no longer have any room to display electric vehicles. However, please feel free to stop by and say hi!)
Finally, we will have tables with information on electric vehicles and solar energy, activities for children, and EV exhibits provided by Drive Electric RVA and Virginia Clean Cities.
