National Drive Electric Week
Sep 09, 2018
|Day:||Sunday, September 9, 2018 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Overall, we had a great event! We had 10 vehicles, 3 Tesla Model S's, 3 Tesla Model 3's, 1 Honda Clarity, 1 Nissan Leaf, 1 Fiat 500 E and a Zero Electric Motorcycle. Combined we traveled more than 150,000 electric miles and we had attendees from as far away as Fredericksburg, Richmond, Williamsburg, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Unfortunately, weather did have an effect on our event. There was a 90% chance of thunderstorms forecasted all week and even on the day of our event which I'm sure kept many people away. Thankfully, the weather did hold out until the end of our event.
Because there is a future event in Virginia Beach, we were able to pass along our leftover marketing materials to that event and reduce our overall footprint and budget required to host multiple events in our region.
A great time was had by all and dozens of people learned more about driving electric across our community!
