Event Description


Join us for the Inland Empire - National Drive Electric Week event in Riverside for family fun on September 16, 2018 from 10am to 2pm.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are fun to drive, are less expensive to operate, more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, and are better for the environment. 

• Experience the excitement of driving a sampling of EVs

• Talk to EV owners who already have made the switch

• Find out about EV federal and state incentives

• Bring the family to enjoy food trucks, vendors, EV displays, games, prizes and lots of fun!

 • Charging stations on site

The first 150 test drivers get coupons for FREE tacos from the “Culinary Chameleon” UCR food truck.
A valid driver’s license is required to test drive vehicles.
