Event Report

We had a great turn out on a beautiful Tuesday evening at Land-Grant Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio.  Our 3rd annual NDEW EVent was hosted by Drive Electric Columbus and we had about 150 people drop by during our 4 hour event.  

We ended up with 19 vehicles in our EV Showcase - two Nissan Leafs (one with an owner and one with a dealership), Jaguar IPace (dealership), Mitsubishi Outlander, Kia Niro EV, Hyundai Kona EV, two Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, two Tesla Model 3 (one with an owner and one with Yellow Cab), OSU EcoCar, Ford Fusion Energi, VW EGolf, Chevrolet Volt, Chevrolet Bolt (dealership), and three Zero Motorcycles!

We are so thankful that we had many partners able to help us with this this event including Clean Fuels Ohio, Smart Columbus, EV United, OSU EcoCar, Buckeye Nissan, Spin, Dave Gill Chevrolet, OH Solar, Orbity City Bikes, AAA Ohio, Yellow Cab, Jaguar of Easton, and Greenlots.  We also want to thank COSI for bringing a hand-ons science station and Kelci for drawing caricatures.  And of course a special thank you to all of our volunteers who helped with set up, showing EVs/PHEVs to everyone, sharing information at our group table, taking photos, and everything else.

Event Description


Drive Electric Columbus invites you to stop by Land Grant Brewing Company on September 17th from 5 to 9pm to celebrate National Drive Electric Week. 

We will have EVs for you to see at our EV Showcase and you can ask questions to EV drivers to see what it is really like to drive electric.   Buckeye Nissan will have a 2019 Nissan LEAF and Dave Gill Chevrolet will have a 2019 Chevy Bolt at the EVent for you to see.

We will also have information available from Clean Fuels Ohio, Smart Columbus, OH Solar, EV United, the OSU EcoCar Team, AAA Ohio, Spin, Orbit City Bikes, and Greenlots!  

Lots of fun for everyone as Kelci the caricature artist will be there, COSI is bringing a hands on science exhibit, and we'll have remote control EV races so be sure to plan to spend some time checking all of that out.

Ninja Bowl Food Truck will be there with lots of great options if you are hungry.  Street parking is available (both free and metered), lots and garages at COSI and Vets Memorial, and there are EV chargers within walking distance.
