Event Description


Join us for the 2nd annual Grand Rapids National Drive Electric Week event!  We plan to have plenty of plug-in vehicle owners showing their personal cars and answering questions related to life with an electric vehicle.  There is no sales pressure, just a group of enthusiasts who are happy to share information and experience.  

Note that the location has changed from the Meijer Cascade store to Leader Lights in Kentwood.
