Event Report

We had the Jaguar I-Pace Prototype at the event this year! The Jaguar dealer brought a tent and we had our own tent as well. The Louisiana Tesla Owners and Dreamers Facebook Group joined us bringing at least 2 examples of every Tesla Model currently made. This year we focused on talking to shoppers at the mall about the vehicles and making the event feel more accessible to the general public.

LCF also made custom event t-shirts! Don't they look great?

Event Description


National Drive Electric Week Event
Tanger Outlet Mall
Gonzales, LA
Saturday, September 15th / 10AM - 2PM

National Drive Electric Week is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles and more.  Join us at Tanger Outlet Mall in Gonzales, LA by the level II chargers to learn more about these great cars and talk to people who own them and love to drive them. 

We will have tents in the sidewalk area by the chargers for all volunteers. We will also provide cold drinks and lunch for EV owners who sign up and bring their EVs for display.  So volunteer to bring your EV today! 

There will be a variety of electric vehicles on display including those from Nissan, Tesla, GM, and BMW. Stop by early and pick up some cool #NDEW2018 swag. Keep checking in with us for more details as they become available!
