Event Report

Baltimore is one of the top cities in the U.S. for electric vehicles. We have over 40 public EV charging stations, including DC fast charging just outside of City Hall, adjacent to the War Memorial Plaza with dedicated EV charging and parking. Our 2017 NDEW event combined electric bikes and cars, with Baltimore also having the second largest electric bike fleet of any city bike share fleet in North America. Hybrid Pedals is an electric bike business supporting clean transportation in Baltimore, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

Our core organizers, John Lebo, co-founder of Hybrid Pedals, Frank Lee, Baltimore City EV champion, and Jill rode from Hybrid Pedals to Exelon's headquarters at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Exelon has created a for-profit subsidiary, EZ-EV, to encourage EV adoption and use. We were joined at Exelon's site by John Jay in his beeeeeautiful EMotion, which drew a crowd. We then rode and drove on to City Hall where we were joined by a Nissan LEAF and Ford Fusion.

Event Description


Baltimore Celebrates National Drive Electric Week with an E-Moblity Party

Join us for a Drive Electric Week celebration in Baltimore next Wednesday, September 13 at 4:00 p.m. We have a growing e-mobility contingent in Baltimore City with a focus on mobility hubs, electric-assist cycling and, of course, cars. We are pushing for electric buses and shuttles as well.

Our starting location for our e-mobility party is electric bike shop, Hybrid Pedals, at 2030 Aliceanna Street in Baltimore, MD 21231.

We will convene an entourage of electric bikes to travel to City Hall in Baltimore, the Memorial War Plaza at 400 Lexington in Baltimore, MD 21202, where we will have a number of EVs parked at EV charging in front of City Hall.

We are celebrating our e-mobility, and Baltimore’s progress integrating EVs into its smart city infrastructure development.
