Event Report

Event was held over lunch on NC Sate University's Centennial Campus.  There was a strong turn-out from EV owners and local dealers with total of 27 EV and PHEV vehicles on participating with 10 available for ride & drives.  A good mix of students and working people with some old and new faces visiting.  Weather and crowd was great.  Centennial Campus also hosted an Earth Day event in April.  With the two recent successes, we will be back.  Good venue and excellent trun-out.    

Event Description


All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2021 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

It’s National Drive Electric Week! Are you interested in learning more about electric and hybrid vehicles? 

Join us for a car show and ride & drive on September 19th from 11am-2pm at Venture Plaza on NC State University's Centennial campus.  For this lunch time event, there will be food trucks, static EVs and PHEVs to look at, as well as test drive.  If you are an owner, there will be room for up to 10 static vehicles for the static car show.  Owners are also welcome to participate in the ride & drive portion of the event.   For those who just want to visit and are not part of the Centennial Campus community, pay public parking is available in front of the Hunt library.  This is the same venue as the spring 2019 Earth Day event and will be a similar setup.  Come on out have lunch and learn about driving on electricity!
