National Drive Electric Week
Sep 21, 2014
|Day:||Sunday, September 21, 2014 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Thousands of Calgarians witnessed 24 electric vehicles taking over almost an entire block in the heart of downtown Calgary. Combined the electric vehicles on display had a combined mileage of nearly 320,000 km (200,000 miles)! It was a beautiful and sunny day which was a relief given unprecedented snowfall pounding the city in early September. Many enthusiastic members of the public saw electric vehicles for the first time and learned more about the advantages of "Driving Electric" from knowledgeable owners. This was the inaugural public event of the recently founded Electric Vehicle Association of Alberta (EVAA) and the largest gathering of electric vehicles in Alberta ever. We are excited to make NDEW 2015 bigger and better with a larger venue that can accommodate test rides for all to experience electric first hand!
