Event Report

It rained, but we carried on and folks came out in rain jackets!
We had one of almost every available EV on the plaza (plus an ELF vehicle), and many more parked in the parking lot. Win Kelly Chevrolet and Owings Mills Tesla sent vehicles and knowledgeable staff people. Tesla Owners of the Mid-Atlantic Club and MD Volt spread the word to their members.

Our event was in coordination with the Howard County Sierra Club's Rise 4 Climate event (also at Clarksville Commons). Although there was surely some overlap of interest, each event also brought people who might not have attended the other - mutually beneficial!

County Council Rep. Calvin Ball, who is running for County Executive spent some time at the event.

Event Description


Join us for National Drive Electric Week 2018 at Clarksville Commons!

Last year's event was a great success, and we are excited to generate more EV buzz in Maryland!

Local dealers will be at the Commons with their electric cars, as well as other green-minded businesses and organizations. Check out our free charging stations and all the environmentally-friendly design elements around the Commons.

If you plan to bring your electric car, please list it when you register so we have a sense of what's coming. Between dealerships and private owners, we hope to have one of everything displayed on the plaza.
