Event Report

The 6th annual Drive Electric Show in Asheville turned out to be one of the most successful electric car shows in the region.  With over 500 attendees in a 4-hour span, many ready to buy and EV, the atmosphere was energetic and joyful.  We had over 80 registrations before the show began and over 60 cars registered making this show in Asheville one of the largest EV show in the Southeastern United States.

 Many thanks go to our hosts The Asheville Outlets who have supported the Drive Electric Show on their premises for 5 years.   Music was provided by Live Edge Audio.  Our professional emcee kept the crowd engaged with door prizes and plugs from all of our sponsors.   CM Wilson Solar, Duke Energy, Blue Ridge Energy, Haywood Electric Cooperative,  The HOP Ice Cream, WiBuy Energy, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition,  The Climate Reality, Greenlots, Green Sage Cafe, Fields Auto Jaguar, and Asheville Chevrolet were all sponsors of the event.   In addition, there were several electric bicycles and a homemade electric scooter.
