Event Report

National Drive Electric Week has come and gone once again, and this year's iteration was, simply put, electrifying!  The Louisiana Clean Fuels staff had a great time speaking with the public about how amazing driving electric can be.  Our site was in the greater Baton Rouge area at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Gonzales.  This event featured an electric vehicle showcase of over 20 vehicles along with representatives from Entergy E-Tech, the Commuter Krewe, Paretti Jaguar/Land Rover of Baton Rouge and Tesla who came out to show their support for NDEW.  Over 100 people found their way through our showcase, asking questions about EV's and expressing their appreciation for the vehicles on display. 

We at LCF had a great time spreading the word about electric vehicles and we can't wait to make next year's National Drive Electric Week even better!  Thanks so much to everyone who helped to put on this event or who came out to show their support!

Event Description


National Drive Electric Week, September 14-22, 2019, 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. There will be a variety of EVs on display including those from Nissan, Tesla, GM, and BMW.

Join us at #TangerOutlets in Gonzales, LA to learn more about these great cars and talk to people who own them and love to drive them. Stop by early and pick up some cool #NDEW2019 swag. If you participate in our EV Awareness survey, you can walk away with a SWEET "Louisiana EV Road Show" T-shirt! Keep checking in with us for more details as they become available!
