Event Description


All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

The members of the Bend Electric Vehicle Club are celebrating National Drive Electric Week with a Ride & Drive event in Northwest Crossing!

On Wed Sep 12 the Bend Electric Vehicle Club will be parked along the street on the south side of Compass Park in Northwest Crossing.

We'll have a variety of electric vehicles and their owners there so the public can look at electric vehicles, ask questions of their owners, and maybe even go for a drive! Our planned lineup of electric cars will include the BMW i3, Volkswagon e-Golf, Kia Soul Electric, Tesla Model S and Model 3, Nissan LEAF, and Chevy Bolt - plus, a Zero FXS electric motorcycle.

If you are interested in bringing and showing your personal electric car at either of these events please, register by clicking the button at the top of this page, and contact Henry Abel using the blue "Contact" button at the top of this page. We'd love to have you there!
